LinksMy name is Jon Curtis, aka "j.c. Tokes" ● One-Man-Band. I reign from the lush mountains
of Western North Carolina’s Madison County where moonshine stills and ramshackle cabins
abound. A land of misfits and outlaws. Since my days of youth, music has been my muse, life, and
lover… a feeling shared with all musicians out there, I’m sure. I’ve dabbled with many instruments
in this life but have settled into being a string-stretcher, reed-licker, and ivory-tickler (guitar,
saxophone, piano). My solo act as j.c. Tokes is guitar-based: my voice, my guitar, a kick drum, and
hi-hat which provides a solid beat and can give way to some dancing patrons.
I can best describe my solo adventure as Retro-Country/Americana originals, with a
sprinkling of covers (often older and public domain).
In my last band (Rockabilly/Honky-Tonk) I was playing keyboard and singing. We reached
the status of number one Rockabilly for our region on ReverbNation. We played many local venues
and did a 6 week tour to the west coast. From there I transitioned to playing one-man-band gigs
with keyboard and kick drums but decided, as a solo act, it worked better to move back to one of
my original instruments, the guitar. I currently also play keyboard and sing in a folk duo, and was
occasionally play alto saxophone in various incarnations of bands, but I most love spending my
time offering this brand of “j.c. Tokes” performance.

Asheville Gallery of Art’s May show, “Chasing the Light,” will feature the work of Joyce Schlapkohl who describes her style as, “painterly realism with a strong focal point.” The show runs May 1-31 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, May 4, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. When the artist moved from Florida to her native North Carolina 19 years ago, she was a watercolor painter and teacher who was then known for her boats, seascapes, and florals. However, she switched to oils almost immediately to capture the local landscape, flowers, animals, and any subject that inspired her with strong light and shadow patterns. “While watercolor training still influences the way I see values, oils add freedom for creating texture and layering paint.” Her formal art training began after earning a Master’s Degree in Business. When a back injury sidelined her, she studied art at Florida Atlantic University and has continued taking workshops with nationally known teachers. “A wonderful part of painting is that you never stop learning and developing your eye for seeing regardless of the medium you use. I’m very fortunate to be able to paint full time. I’m very thankful that I love what I do and can share life’s beauty as I see it. Hopefully the local scenes will stir emotion for the viewer as they have inspired me.” The artist’s studio is in Waynesville, NC. You can find Joyce’s work at Asheville Gallery of Art, Seven Sisters Gallery in Black Mountain, and Twigs and Leaves Gallery in Waynesville. She is a Signature Member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. Her website is www.joycepaints.com and her e-mail is [email protected] Schlapkohl’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of May. For further information about this show, you can contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.

Are you looking for a quick crash course to help you find mental strategies or breathing strategies to cope with labor?  Does your partner need some guidance on how to support you during your birth?  Do you have some fears or anxieties about the big day and how you are going to get through it?  Comfort measures are not just for an unmedicated vaginal birth, but are useful and often most needed when labor does not go the way we planned. Join us for this 1 1/2 hour class to give mom's tools to feel safe and strong during her labor and help her relax down into the sensations she will feel rather than fight them.  Partners will leave this class knowing when to talk, what to say (understanding your mama's love lanugage), how to support, how to touch and bring pain relief both during and between contractions.  This is a Homegrown Babies community offering that is offered at no charge!

More about Market Place: We are a group of cooks, farmers, waiters, cheese-makers, organizers, ranchers, brewers and dishwashers who share a common philosophy about how we eat and in a larger sense, about life. Chef William Dissen Chef William Dissen We believe in the importance of working locally, not just using ingredients from our surrounding area, but also in our contribution to the community. The success of our restaurant has always been closely entwined with the health and progress of our community. For 35 years we have supported the arts, local-needs and education programs. Our clients have returned over the decades, we hope in part because we have always tried to treat them as family… and friends. Some might say, our food tastes good, perhaps even memorable. Each day, we do our utmost to prepare and present fresh food in a creative manner with a craftsman’s hand. Working in the most sustainable way possible is important. The Market Place has been a fixture in downtown Asheville since 1979. Though it’s beginnings rose in the streams and mountains of western North Carolina – a place of mountain trout and small farms – it also has a hand and heart inspired by traditions far from our borders. This mélange of local food prepared with other worldly traditions of the table may have helped the Market Place garner national attention but the keen reverence for the heritage and roots of Appalachia has always remained at the center of what we do.

Description:

When she was 14 years old, Ruby Boots real name Bex Chilcott left a conflicted home in Perth, Western Australia to do grueling work on pearling boats, and she hasnt stopped migrating since. Her nomadic streak has taken her around the world and eventually to Nashville, TN. Her sophomore record Dont Talk About It is being released in February 2018 on Bloodshot Records. Echoes of first wave UK power pop and jangly punk intersect with the every (wo)man indie and pop-inflected muscle of Best Coast. Classic rock touchstones from T. Rex to Girl Group Wall of Sound to personal hero Tom Petty meld with a weary poets eye recalling Hope Sandoval. Her first record Solitude was released on Lost Highway in 2015 to rave reviews from No Depression, The Age, and more.Ruby has toured extensively in Europe with Nikki Lane, and the Texas Gentlemen are her backing band on Dont Talk About It. Ruby has also shared the stage with Kris Kristofferson, Justin Townes Earle, Shovels and Rope, and many others. She was one of the top 20 Best Things We Saw from Rolling Stone at AmericanaFest 2017. Country twang with outlaw bravado, tapping into the loose energy of a young Lucinda Williams. (Rolling Stone)

“So this memorable thing happened to me and I want to tell you all about it!”  More and more people in Asheville and elsewhere are crafting short personal narratives to be told on stage for storyslam shows like Stories at The Moth, curated series like Listen to This, and popular podcasts like This American Life. But those who do it well know that it is more than just getting up on stage and winging it, more than simply reporting the recollections of the past.  This six-week course covers techniques for creating a compelling personal narrative piece to be shared on stage; one that speaks to the assigned theme of a storytelling event, comes in on time, and through image-driven language gives the listeners the sense of having lived the memory themselves. Students will learn how to choose a story to tell, how to write a compelling first line, how to structure and deliver their story, and how to know when to end, resisting the temptation to tack on a lesson-learned epilogue. Participants will be given a series of writing prompts to spark different short personal narratives. Class meets Thursday evenings from 6pm-8pm. For their final class, each student will perform their best piece as part of a special student-showcase version of the monthly storytelling series, Listen to This, at 35 Below on Thursday, June 28th at 7:30 PM. The week before class starts, participants are encouraged to attend the Stories at The Moth performance at The Mothlight in West Asheville on Wednesday, May 16th. Tickets go on sale on May 9th at 3PM at https://themoth.org/events/ego-asheville. They sell out quickly so set your alarm! As part of the second class, students will get to attend the May edition of Listen to This at 35 Below. Tom Chalmers is the host and producer of Listen to This, stories on stage, now in its tenth season, three years in Los Angeles and seven years here in Asheville. A graduate of Columbia University, Tom came out of the NYC storytelling scene in the 90s where he performed at Collective Unconscious, Surf Reality, and the original Stories at The Moth. He has done two one-man shows of his personal stories, Every Bone In My Bodyand Harm for the Holidays. While in New York, Tom was a company member and artistic director of Groundlings East and a member of the original Upright Citizens Brigade house team. After New York, Tom moved to LA where he was a writer for SHOWTIME Television and literary manager of the renowned Sacred Fools Theatre Company. He has taught at NYU and Warren Wilson College. He currently teaches classes through the Flatiron Writers Room and the Asheville School of Improv. He is a member of the Asheville improv troupe, Reasonably Priced Babies, and is the co-host of the sports talk radio show, Steve Sax Syndrome, on AshevilleFM 103.3   What's the refund policy? The Flatiron Writers Room reserves the right to cancel this workshop if not enough people sign up, in which case you will receive a full refund. You may request a refund up until one week before the event starts, via Eventbrite or email to flatironwritersroom[at]gmail.com for a full refund. After that date, no refunds will be made.

James Carothers - Relapse James Carothers - Back to Hank Mixing together Tennessee twang, southern storytelling, and a big, booming baritone, James Carothers makes throwback country music for modern times.

It's an old-school sound that ignores the trends of contemporary radio. You won't find any bro-country songs here. No Auto Tuned vocals, either. Instead, Carothers dishes up a reminder of country music's golden years — a time filled with fiddle solos, analog production, and slyly simple songs about heartaches and hangovers. His first full-length album, Relapse, available May 5th, 2017, offers plenty of all three.

If Relapse bears similarities to classic releases by George Jones, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, it's because Carothers wrote most of the songs between daily gigs at The George Jones in Nashville. Since its opening in 2015, he's performed hundreds of shows at the venue, playing acoustic duo sets throughout the week with loyal sideman Jerry Lee Combs on bass and a weekly Saturday night band show on The George Jones Rooftop. George Jones' own widow, Nancy, personally hired Carothers for the gig, giving him the opportunity to do something he’s thankful for and that so many aspiring artists moving to Nashville only dream of doing – make a living playing music.

In addition to supporting his young family, performing daily at The George Jones has helped Carothers build a large fan base of fiercely supportive followers — fans who are drawn through the venue’s doors by the booming voice echoing down 2nd Avenue and his spot-on impressions of several of country music’s greatest icons. The gig has also allowed him to sharpen his stage show — not to mention his rare ability to entertain and interact with fans in a way that leaves most people feeling like they’ve made a new friend.

"My whole life, I've always loved those legendary artists,” he says, "I've really learned how to sound like them, too. My Willie Nelson sounds like Willie Nelson. My Johnny Cash sounds like Johnny Cash. When I do the Highwaymen, it sounds like all of them. People really do want to hear all these old classic songs and I guess singing them is kind of what has made things happen for me here in Nashville. I see a lot of folks doing double takes when they first walk by – the impressions definitely get their attention. Then they stop and hang out with us for a show or two, buy a CD, and a lot of them keep coming back. It may sound cliché, but Jerry Lee and I really have made a bunch of lifelong friends just "sittin’ on a bar stool actin’ like a darn fool."
James & his father, Jim Carothers.

Raised in rural Tennessee, Carothers grew up leading acapella singing every Sunday in the Church of Christ. His father was a hobby songwriter who landed a song on the Grand Ole Opry and recorded a couple of studio albums in Nashville before moving the family out west for work while his son was still in grade school. Inspired by his dad, Carothers always toyed with songwriting and began playing his own shows in local honky tonks around New Mexico during his teenage years. Meanwhile, he got married, started a family, and paid the bills as a technician at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, working in the same place the atomic bomb was created.

Carothers visited Nashville in 2014 and recorded Honky Tonk Land (an EP released the same year) at Beaird Music Group. The EP garnered a little attention from traditional country music fans and was even featured by MusicRow magazine’s Robert K. Oermann as a DISCovery Award Winner. But the music gig remained a side project until 2015, when he — encouraged by his wife — left the lab for good and returned to Tennessee, this time settling in the country music capital of Nashville. The opening lines of his new project’s title track “Relapse,” although seemingly penned through a relationship lens, may also elude to the stone-cold country crooner’s true feelings about returning to the south.

Raisin' Hell and Slingin' Gravel Dallas Moore - Blessed Be the Bad Ones Dallas Moore’s old-school country sound developed honestly, following over 20 years of sharing stages and studios with his honky-tonk heroes. Satellite radio support, paired with a willingness to perform over 300 shows a year, finds the seasoned veteran positioned to reach the Americana masses with his forthcoming album Mr. Honky Tonk.

Tastemakers have taken note already, with the Dallas Moore Band crowned the Ameripolitan Music Awards’ 2017 Outlaw Group of the Year. The award came after three prior nominations for the band No Depression credits with bringing “hangovers and excitement to outlaw country fans everywhere.”

Recent career strides caught the attention of producer/country-music heavyweight Dean Miller, son of Roger Miller and an accomplished songwriter himself, having penned tunes with George Jones, Hank Williams III, Jamey Johnson and more. Miller entered Baird Music Group’s Nashville studio with Moore and his band to record what was originally planned to be a five-song EP. “Out of all the things we’ve ever done, I think Dean captured what I do way better than anyone else we’ve ever worked with,” Moore says. “It was the best recording experience I ever had.”

The EP turned album after its barnstorming title track—a song Moore actually wrote 20 years prior—gained serious traction on Sirius XM satellite radio’s Outlaw Country channel. The album’s other tunes came more recently, all of them written in the past year and a half, making them clearer snapshots of how sharing stages (and rounds of shots) with his country-music idols has impacted his songwriting. “In the last several years, I’ve been real blessed to tour with a lot of my songwriting influences, and they’ve helped me improve my craft,” Moore says. “Guys like Dean Dillon, Billy Joe Shaver and Ray Wylie Hubbard have been so supportive. It’s really cool when your heroes become your friends, and that’s what happened in the past several years.”

Moore’s stage show—already seen in years past by fans of Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd—has improved with every opportunity to open for an iconic country or Southern-rock artist. “If you’re playing in the slot before Dean Dillon,” Moore says, “You’d better not suck.”

Another crew of country luminaries performed on the album, including harmonica legend Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Chris Stapleton), famed Nashville session bassist Michael Rhodes and pedal-steel master Steve Hinson. “We walked in to the studio and saw all of these incredible players lined up,” Moore says. “I thought they were there to play with someone else!”

Even with such ample backing, the main attraction on Mr. Honky Tonk is still Moore and his deft skill as a songwriter and lyricist. Like so many of his inspirations, he’s an ace at spinning relatable stories. On “Killing Me Nice and Slow,” he weaves an impactful tale of lost love (“It’s a long way down when you’re higher than a Georgia pine on love and whiskey the night before / Then you hear the slamming of the door”). From there, Moore puts his spin on time-tested country tropes such as celebrating place (“Texahio,” a nod to splitting time between Texas and his native Cincinnati) and balancing Saturday-night hellraising with Sunday-morning God praising (“Shoot Out the Lights”).

Moore’s mother—a bluegrass and gospel performer herself—bought her son his first guitar when he was 16 years old. Before that, sports had been his first priority. “My big claim to fame back in those days—one year I beat out Ken Griffey Jr. for the most home runs in the league,” Moore says. “But then I got a guitar the next year, and I quit—I walked away as a winner!”

A few years later, Moore enrolled at Northern Kentucky University to study jazz and classical guitar. But he found his true calling in a less high-brow environment around the same time, performing on the local bar scene in a country house band. Multi-night stints playing classic covers set a precedent for the Dallas Moore Band’s sound and unrelenting tour schedule. And Moore’s gruff vocals have made him an ideal singer of songs about hard luck and harder living as far back as his 1991 debut LP, My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys.

Once Mr. Honky Tonk arrives in February, expect Moore to play nonstop in support of his new album. He played a whopping 327 shows in 2017, and that was without an album to promote. Who knows, he might just play solo or with his band every single night in 2018.
