Local residents brought lawn chairs and blankets for an afternoon of entertainment from the Appalachian State University Steely Pan Steel Drum Band on Saturday on the lawn of the Morganton branch of the Burke County Public Library. The band, comprised of 22 ASU students, performed a variety of music, including traditional soca/calypsos, to classical, to rock and roll and even some traditional Appalachian Mountain music, under the direction of Dr. Steve Barnhart, professor at ASU’s Hayes School of Music.
