>Melissa Greener in Concert


Friday, January 13 – Trent River Coffee Company
Saturday, January 14 – Clawson’s Restaurant

It’s been a long and winding road that brings Melissa Greener to Eastern North Carolina. Her love of music became evident when she got her first guitar at age 9, and by high school she was performing at talent shows. However, wanderlust and lost loves sidetracked her music career as Greener spent time in Canada and explored teaching in China.Upon her return, she found nothing but closed doors in Nashville so she headed for Austin, Texas where her talent was applauded and nourished.

Blessed with a glorious, outsized, and utterly distinctive voice, Greener is also an accomplished guitarist whose powerful acoustic flat-picking is rooted in blues and folk. Combine that with a songwriting skill that is poetry for the heart and an outstanding stage presence – Melissa Greener is the total package!

Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 members, $8 students. See www.downeastfolkarts.org or call 252-633-6444 for further information.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
