The Coyote Music Den has canceled all events for the rest of February due to the construction in the Community Square parking lot.

Marcy Brenner, one half of Coyote with Lou Castro, said Monday that Castro may conduct music lessons if there’s a clear, safe path to the Den.

“But at night, there’s no way,” she said. “So, we canceled Tuesday Jams, Wednesday Word Play and the Open Mic for February.”

Work began last week in Community Square to create a waste water system for the square’s shops and is expected to continue for several more weeks, said Scott Bradley, president of the Ocracoke Community Foundation, which owns the square.

The construction is part of the renovation plan for the entire square.

Late this year, work will begin to refurbish the Willis Fish House and dock, which were seriously compromised in 2016 by Tropical Storm Hermine and Hurricane Matthew.

This building and dock is home to the Ocracoke Working Watermen’s Exhibit.
