Baldaroo Music Festival 2018

SAPPHIRE -- Hurricane Creek band opens Sept. 15 for the 2018 Baldaroo Music Festival in Sapphire, an annual fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of the Plateau. Other Baldaroo musical performers included Kurt Thomas Band and Jay Drummonds. The festival went on despite some folks being scared off by the passing Tropical Storm Florence in eastern North Carolina, which left southern Jackson County mostly unscathed. However, Florence did ground the operators of an eastern N.C. fireworks company, which was reportedly unable to make it through the storm to get to Sapphire to present a scheduled fireworks show for Baldaroo. Sapphire residents Sheila Costigan, left, and Dennis Tribble listen to Hurricane Creek perform at Baldaroo. Costigan flaps the front paws of Bosley, her long-haired dachshund, back and forth in time to the music. (Video by Don Richeson.)
