We didn’t think his in-demand schedule would permit a return by MICHAEL HULETT this year, but he had a cancellation and we did some rescheduling to get him on the schedule for SEPTEMBER 2. Michael needs no introduction to most of you at Bear Paw so we look forward to all his fans joining us for this concert. We encourage anyone who has not witnessed Michael’s incredible talent as a vocalist and saxophonist to join us for this end of the season concert. He will once again be ending his “northern” tour here at Bear Paw.
All concerts are on Saturday nights at 7:30 PM. You are encouraged to bring your lawn chairs, food and beverages and come early so you have time to visit with your neighbors and friends. Prices are still $10/Advance; $12/Gate and $5/Under 13 – the advance price is not available the day of the concert. At this time, we are planning to stage all three events under the Pavilion but you are still welcome to sit out on the lawn and enjoy the music under the stars if you prefer – we may even move a few picnic tables out there for your use.
If you have questions about the season or suggestions for future performances, please call Caroline Elkin, 828/644-5113; Gail Taylor, 828/644-9566 or e-mail Ginger Webster at firstname.lastname@example.org.

BEAR PAW LIVE! 2017
The 4th Season of Bear Paw Live! brings back to Bear Paw your favorite performers from our first three seasons. “THE BEST OF BEAR PAW LIVE!” will feature the incomparable BILLY DEAN & DAWN from Season 1, THE JEFF LITTLE TRIO, a huge hit in Season 3 and your perennial favorite, MICHAEL HULETT.
The season kicks off with a bang on JULY 1 as BILLY DEAN & DAWN, a dynamic duo loved for their vast repertoire and personal chemistry, light up the BPL! stage. With a voice that is rich and versatile, Dawn’s performances are mesmerizing whether she is doing her unique renditions of jazz, pop, Broadway or even an occasional operatic aria. Billy is equally talented and rounds out the duo on keyboard and saxophone, sometimes even joining Dawn on vocals.
If you saw and heard THE JEFF LITTLE TRIO last year, you don’t need any enticement to be back at the BP Pavilion on AUGUST 5 to experience them again. Jeff leaves nothing to the imagination with his breathtaking speed, precision and clarity on the piano. He is joined by Steve Lewis, a highly respected acoustic musician who is equally at home on the guitar or the five- string banjo. The trio is completed by the award winning and critically acclaimed Josh Scott on the upright bass. Last year we were treated to a performance by Jeff’s son, Luke, who joined the band for the first time playing the mandolin - we are hoping for a repeat performance by Luke this year. If you didn’t get a chance to hear the band’s rendition of “Dueling Banjos” on piano and banjo last year, you don’t want to miss this return engagement.
