Welcome The Dagmar Bumpers! The Dagmar Bumpers is a six-piece band playing swanky 50’s Era Rock & Boogie Woogie.
They performed in April 2015 at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.
Hand-picked sets of lesser-known songs representing the best and coolest sounds of the time. With saxaphone, standup bass, keyboards, guitars and vocals, they play at the edge where Swing became Rock, at the very start of Rock & Roll, a mean Boogie Woogie. Our audiences find themselves up on their feet, celebrating the excitement of the time when swing became Rock ‘n Roll.
Check out more of their music on their Dagmar Bumpers YouTube Channel.
Enjoy keyboards and singing by this duo, Laine Lipson & Avis Autry, regulars on the Pittsboro music scene, playing on acoustic nights at the Pittsboro Roadhouse and at art openings at the local art galleries.
Laine and Avis will be bringing their Valentine’s Day themed music to The Roadhouse on Thursday February 11th, 2016
Check out our Valentine’s Day Dinner Menu.

All bands are homegrown from right here in Pittsboro and write all of their own material with the exception of a few cover tunes.
The Familiars with Elizabeth Haddix and Eddie Holm
The Familiars start out at 7pm in the Lounge for some laid back original tunes that feature songwriters Elizabeth Haddix and Eddie Holm. Elizabeth is formerly of The Bad Mothers, a Pittsboro favorite. Eddie currently plays with Uniontown, who takes the stage at 9pm. This duo pumps out a unique blend of AppaDeltaJazzBursts with wandering melodies about social justice and of course, life.
Circle City with Tracy Lynn, Fred Royal, Shannon Blackwell and Dave Smith
At 8pm, Circle City showcases songwriters Tracy Lynn on vocals and guitar, Fred Royal on drums and vocals, Shannon Blackwell on bass, and Dave Smith on guitar and vocals. The fresh and new band configuration elevates the solid songwriting and clever hooks with tasteful dynamics that aren’t too loud and definitely not wimpy. Lynn previously fronted Pittsboro darlings The Bad Mothers with life partner, Royal, who bangs it out with Uniontown. Blackwell has a laundry list of Chapel Hill based bands including HWYL, Tim Stambaugh, Tony Sullivan and His Burning Sinsations and others. Pittsboro native, Dave Smith, is regarded as one of the area’s finest guitarists by his peers and rotates between the gypsy jazz brilliance of the Onyx Club Boys and numerous side projects.
Uniontown has been writing and performing original swamp anthems since 2010. Chris Long’s true grit storytelling, Ed Holm and Fred Royal’s driving rhythms and great harmonies put Uniontown’s soiled blue collar sound a cut above your average working band sound. Show starts at 9pm.

It is almost unheard of in this day to find hand-smocked children’s dresses. Right here in Pittsboro, North Carolina we have an expert at making smocked children’s dresses by hand. Madeline Stewart has been making children’s dresses for over three decades. We asked her to show us how she makes these classic children’s clothes. Madeline showed us. We were dumbstruck with how much was involved. Madeline said that it wasn’t hard, just follow one step after another. We took some videos to show the process, see how easy you think it is.
And then come by our store and take a look at these beautiful hand-made dresses – for under $40. These are classic dresses, made by hand. Madeline donates what she makes on the dresses to a couple who are missionaries in the US, to thank them for their good work.
