It’s easy!  Visit, select Fayetteville & Cumberland County as your location, and click on our project “Mystic Chords of Memory.”  This project supports funding to provide and promote musical talent in conjunction with historical programming at the Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex and is currently raising funds to bring the Huckleberry Brothers to headline our Civil War living history event, “Skirmishes and Shortages: NC in 1863” on April 6, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Huckleberry Brothers formed as a group in 2002 with just three members.  They met as Civil War re-enactors with a shared interest in mid 19th century music, and their reputation quickly grew.  Now nine members strong, they perform at living history presentations, period balls, and for various functions at historic sites throughout the state including the North Carolina State Capitol. You can help bring them to Fayetteville by visiting to learn more!  For a limited time the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County will match all donations dollar for dollar. So don’t wait. Give today to double your donation.

The Museum of the Cape Fear is a unit of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources. For more information on North Carolina arts, history and culture, visit Cultural Resources online.
