The Lost Girls will get you tapping your foot with old-time string band music and sister harmonies. Playing together for more years than they care to admit, the Lost Girls include Karen Koenig (fiddle, banjo, vocals) and Margery Misenheimer (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), who bring the old-time sound from the mountains of NC. Barbara Blake (guitar, rubboard, vocals) from Down East in Gloucester, provides the rock solid rhythms. Honorary Lost Girls, Tom Parker on bass, lays down the backbone of the tunes, and Bryan Blake accents the music on pedal steel.
My name is Morris Willis and I have been involved in the musical entertainment business for over 56 years. For as long as I can remember, music has been a huge part of my life. In the 60’s I was a member of a popular musical group, The Huckleberry Mudflap. The Mudflap recorded several songs for Scepter Records out of New York City: Blue Surf, Eyes of Blue and Goodnight Mrs. Kollendoffer. The Mudflap traveled from Canada to Florida and in between promoting these songs. After the Mudflap broke up, I started several bands but decided to go out on my own. I enjoy performing as a one-man band, which is what I have been doing for the last 20 years. I perform a good mix of Beach, Country and Rock N Roll. My goal is to keep the dance floor moving, whether people are slow dancing or moving to the beat! I perform in local clubs, wedding receptions, private parties and festivals. Playing music is doing something that I truly love and enjoy.

Our name comes from the gumbo lily, also known as the "butte primrose", which grows in the bare clay buttes, arroyos, and claypans of the western badlands and grasslands. We, however, enjoy the sand and salt air of Eastern North Carolina.
Our music is a blend of old country favorites, Americana, and bluegrass creating our unique sound. We share our love of making music with enthusiasm and humor - in other words, we have a great time together.

Raised in both Nashville, TN and Eastern Carolina, Sabra has developed both a coastal and mountain style in music. Whether covering Nashville favorites like Reba, or classic rock such as Stevie Nicks, or pop folk such as Joni Mitchell, Sabra provides the listener with a musical journey through 5 decades. Unlike many artists Sabra started playing late in life after some physical
disabilities caused her to retire much too early. She combined her love of singing with self taught acoustic guitar. Beginning playing for the public in 2014 at local Eastern NC markets and fundraising events she also returned and performed in Nashville in 2015.
Kurtis is 10 years old and will be the 5th grade this fall. He has two sisters, one older and one younger. Kurtis started showing an interest in music at an early age and has been singing since he was two. He started playing the ukulele about six months ago after teaching himself to play by watching YouTube videos where he learns new songs, and chords. Recently Kurtis started his own YouTube channel to engage his fan base that has requested to hear more of his music. Kurtis has written a song, plays the piano, and hopes to write, compose, and play more of his own work. When he is not singing and playing his ukulele, he loves to play soccer, skateboard, and acting in plays at the local theatre.

I grew up in Otway, and got the name, “Little Cecil,” because my dad was also named Cecil. I started writing songs when I was about thirteen and learned how to play guitar so I could play what I heard in my head.
I have a wide range of musical influences but the Eagles have always been my favorite band. I have played in several bands and at the moment I play with “Wild Blue.” Make it a point to catch me at the Olde Beaufort Farmers’ Market on July 29th!
