Downtown Southport - New Neighbor Spotlight – The Celtic Harp

celtic2 "YAAY!" I said the other day when I was driving down Howe Street and spotted guitars in the window of the old Oliver’s storefront. It’s so nice to see a new business open in Southport, nice to see the hallowed walls of Oliver’s Grill still intact, and even nicer for me to have a music store right around the corner from my house.

Owners Steve and Connie O'Bryan moved to Carolina Beach in '07 from Kentucky. Steve has been playing music his whole life and sold musical instruments for the last thirty. They moved to Oak Island in June of last year. Steve and Connie both have always loved , so when the opportunity arose to set up a main street shop in town, they went for it. Connie says, "I hope we're here to stay." Me too … I’ll be back for a visit very soon. Stop in at 306 N Howe St. or call 457.9145.
