Socks. For most knitters, juggling four or five needles is challenging at best and frustrating at worst. What if you could knit a pair using just TWO standard straight needles? In this surprisingly fun four-week class, Camille Daunno will show you how! Camille has been knitting since she was old enough to hold a pair of needles, and she’s been teaching kids and adults for almost 50 years! The socks are knit in basic foot shapes and sewn together using just one seam. You can get as creative as you like with color and pattern design, choosing either one color of yarn or creating multi-color stripes using multiple or variegated yarns. Basic knitting skills are required, but “confident beginners” are encouraged to register! For more information, or to register, visit the Purple Crayon website: www.purplecrayonavl.com/workshops.

Presenter: Phil Roudebush, Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Given the vital importance of soil to our hobby and avocation, it is amazing that most gardeners don’t venture beyond the understanding that good soil supports plant life and poor soil doesn’t. You’ve undoubtedly seen worms in good soil and have come across other soil life: centipedes, springtails, ants, slugs, ladybird beetle larvae, and more. Healthy soil, however, is not just a few animals. Healthy soil is absolutely teeming with life. This presentation focuses on all the forms of life found in healthy soil and how we can use this information to improve our gardening techniques. The talk is free but registration is requested by calling 828-255-5522.

Worthwhile Sounds Presents: Dead Horses + The Brother Brothers  WHEN: Thursday, Feb 21, 2018 WHERE: 312 Haywood Road Asheville, NC 28806 DOORS: 7pm SHOW:8pm SEATING: SEATED TICKETS:  $15 ADV / $18 DOS / $20 VIP (VIP Guaranteed 1st 3 Rows) Dead Horses At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos’ world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses’ stunning new album, My Mother the Moon, a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience. Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, Dead Horses writes music that is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come. Described by NPR Music as "evocative, empathetic storytelling," My Mother the Moon earned a spot in No Depression's "Best Roots Music Albums of 2018" list, and Rolling Stone Country declared the Wisconsin-based duo an "Artist You Need to Know." The Brother Brothers  The Brother Brothers carry the folk tradition for a new generation. Identical twins David and Adam Moss honor contemporary aches with the nostalgic tenderness of another time on their debut full-length album, SOME PEOPLE I KNOW, out October 19, 2018 on Compass Records. Their stunning songcraft blends masterfully gentle guitar, cello and five-string fiddle with the sublime sort of two-part harmonies only brothers can carry. Their palpably fraternal stage presence and wonderfully familiar heart have earned repute among a modern folk scene; The Brother Brothers have opened for Big Thief, Lake Street Dive, Shakey Graves, and in the fall of 2019, embarked on a 26-date national tour supporting I'm With Her. Recorded at Mark Ettinger’s Lethe Lounge in New York City with producer Robin Macmillan and engineer Jefferson Hamer, The Brother Brothers capably capture a modern snapshot of their surroundings. Yet, SOME PEOPLE I KNOW retains a timeless feel – something that the brothers were aiming for. “I just want people to listen to it once and want to listen to it again,” David says of the album. “And every time they listen to it, I want them to find something new and in some way relate it to themselves. Whether they're listening to it today or in 40 years, I hope it will make them feel just the same.” “wonderful… fabulous old-time playing and sibling harmony.” - NPR / Folk Alley “…capturing their natural harmonies and evocative lyricism, reflecting a timeless sound and spirit.” - Relix "a duo that pairs tasteful harmony vocals with two-person musical arrangements that weave together bluegrass and the darker side of folk.” - No Depression “The Brother Brothers deserve their own phylum upon an advanced musical strain not yet categorized on the roots music family tree. They are the true sound of roots music evolving.” - Saving Country Music Music Video - "Frankie"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bLTBP9VMnY

with The Brook and The Bluff
On a primal level, we react to music through movement.A head-nod, a foot-tap, or a handclap certainly shows appreciation, but dancing seals the eternal bond between audience and musician. Siphoning the spirits of rock, funk, R&B, jazz, and pop through a kaleidoscope of unpredictable and virtuosic improvisation, Boston-based seven-piece Ripe consistently bring people to their feet. Most importantly, they prove that dance music in its purest form doesnt have to come from computers and synthesizers. It can be an unstoppable groove or an extended moment of ecstatic release. Like those bodies moving on the floor, its the result of the energy, friction, and communication between living and breathing people. An inimitable and indefinable chemistry has separated and singled out Ripe since day one. Subverting any and all standard genre boundaries once again, their latest offering confidently continues that tradition. These seven musical soulmates Robbie Wulfsohn [vocals], Tory Geismar [guitar], Jon Becker [guitar], Sampson Hellerman [drums], Josh Shpak [trumpet], Calvin Barthel [trombone], and Nadav Shapira [bass]once again incite listeners to move on their independent full-length debut, Joy In The Wild Unknown. What we make is music you can dance to, affirms Robbie. Were drawn to the peak of a songthe emotional catharsis when everything comes out. Its all about reaching that moment. The revelation comes back to us when bodies shake with joy.Every time we play, something unique happens, adds Jon. Youll never see the same show twice. We want to bring that unexpected element into the pop sphere.Ripe brings the swagger of funk filtered through a rock anthem, a musical journey that somehow gets as stuck in your head as your favorite pop banger. Were gap bridgers, adds Tory. If youve never heard us, I like to describe our music as, If Maroon 5 and Earth, Wind, & Fire had a baby.Formed during their Berklee College of Music days in 2011, the boys have built a rabid fan base through tireless gigging and a steady stream of music. Following 2013s Produce The Juice EP, the 2015 Hey Hello EP yielded fan favorites like Brother Sky, Talk To The Moon, and Goon Squad, which clocked over 1 million Spotify streams. Averaging over 100K monthly listeners on Spotify, the group landed looks from the likes of WXPN, Huffington Post, Verge Campus, Boston Globe and Hype Machine love from sites like Ear to the Ground and Indie Obsessive. Along the way, they also hit the stage at festivals such as SweetWater, Levitate, The Rock Boat, High Sierra, LaureLive, Brooklyn Comes Alive, Audiotree, and Summer Camp. The common thread would always be the translation of their individual interplay to their audience, one that Ripe views as not just fans, but old and new friends; an extended family that is rapidly growing as their sound spreads and their world deepens.The community is so important, says Robbie. Weve got amazing fans who really show up for us. We want to integrate the camaraderie into everything we do. Now, the goal is to communicate our vision to a much wider demographic.Joy In The Wild Unknown represents a creative culmination of a six-year journey. The band tapped the talents of producer Cory Wong of Vulfpeck behind the board. Additionally, five-time GRAMMY Award winner Joe Visciano [Mark Ronson, Adele, Beck, Coldplay] mixed the music, while mastering came courtesy of Randy Merrill [Lady Gaga, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Taylor Swift]. Over the course of twelve songs, it finds the elusive sweet spot between jaw-dropping technicality and airtight songcraft as Ripe collectively kick off a fresh, focused, and fiery next phase.It took us a long time to get to this album, Sampson admits. It never felt right to do a full-length until now. Everything finally locked into place. Just prior, wed been on the road for a year-and-a-half. So much was happening, growing, and changing. It was the moment to make the record.Simultaneously, this was the ending of a lot of things and the start of something new, adds Robbie. This serves as our transition from a band that brings the party towards a band that brings an edge to the party.Ripe introduced this body of work with the simmering bass line and wild wallop of the single Little Lighter, which quickly shuffles into funked-up guitars and a swooning refrainI feel a little lighter.Meanwhile, finger-picked acoustic guitar and a delicate beat drive Downward as everything climaxes on another festival-ready chant, This love keeps pulling me downward.A chorus of horns fuels Flipside before Robbies dynamic delivery instantly hypnotizes. Throughout the verses, he shares the crazy miasma of emotional ups and downs with touring.Fittingly, the latter spawned the title, Joy In The Wild Unknown.Personally, Im at the point where every day seems a little bit surreal, because Im doing the thing I want to do more than anything else with my best friends, smiles Robbie. Music is what defines us. Its what we get to put out into the world. I want to share this deep excitement and happiness. The phrase, Joy In The Wild Unknown, spoke to all seven of us.Ripe gives the same weight to happiness as is often given to sadness. Their music signifies more than just a distraction from your troubles for a few hours - its an experience of connection and acceptance; a warm welcome into their world. In the end, this Joy is shared by an ever-growing community thatll be dancing every time Ripe roll through town. Its an extension of the bond between these seven.If youve never seen us, I want you to feel like youve stumbled on a real family upon introduction and get excited and curious about how to get deeper into this world, Robbie leaves off. Its been about building this thing since day one. I hope you leave exhausted from dancing and feel excited to be a part of something. If you feel that way after seeing us, weve done our jobs.

Joie de vivre is a French phrase often used to express a cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit and this program certainly offers that in the midst of our winter! Festive chamber music was all the rage in the 19th and early 20th century parlors of France and England. Texts from history’s most notable playwrights and melodies borrowing from the exotic far east to the lithe sounds of blues and jazz filled the intimate spaces of modest and wealthy homes alike. These vocal selections are indicative of the “Spotify” and ITunes playlists of their time! Performers: Brittnee Siemon, mezzo-soprano • Kate Steinbeck, flute • Grace Lee, piano

Genre: Rock/Jam/Funk/BluesTickets: $10/$12/$15Show: 8:45PM (Doors: 8PM)Ages: ALL AGESBrandon "Taz" Niederauer Fifteen-year-old Brandon Niederauer, nicknamed “Taz” for his ferocious guitar playing, is living proof that dreams really do come true. Having performed in some of the most legendary venues in America with many of the most prominent musicians of our time, the young guitarist, singer, and songwriter has already earned himself quite the reputation. It all started at eight years old, when Brandon watched the movie School of Rock. Already inspired by his father’s record collection, Brandon instantly realized he was destined to play guitar. From that moment on, his guitar rarely left his hands. Just four years later, Brandon was cast in the principal role of guitarist “Zack Mooneyham” in the Tony Award-nominated Andrew Lloyd Webber Broadway production, School of Rock the Musical. Based in New York City, Brandon has had the opportunity to play with many of his musical idols. In recent years, he’s shared the stage with multiple members of the Allman Brothers Band, including Gregg Allman, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Butch Trucks, and Oteil Burbridge, as well as a variety of other notable musicians, including Buddy Guy, Stevie Nicks, Lady Gaga, Slash, Jon Batiste, Dweezil Zappa, Eric Gales, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Dr. John, Gary Clark Jr., Col. Bruce Hampton, Eric Krasno, George Porter Jr., Robert Randolph, Karl Denson, Doug Wimbish, and John Popper. He has also performed with Tedeschi Trucks Band, The String Cheese Incident, Umphrey's McGee, The Revivalists, Dumpstaphunk, Blackberry Smoke, Galactic, and countless other bands. Since making his national television debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show at just ten years old, Brandon has appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Good Morning America, and The View. In 2018, Brandon reunited with Andrew Lloyd Webber, performing in January with Sarah Brightman at The Phantom of the Opera’s 30th Anniversary celebration, and in April alongside Sara Bareilles, Alice Cooper, and John Legend in NBC’s live broadcast production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Brandon is currently featured in Spike Lee’s Netflix series, She’s Gotta Have It, and performs concerts for audiences across the country and around the world. web: https://www.tazguitar.comvid: https://youtu.be/mreKeGbDHfo?list=PLteA-S35BZxu1nQ5PaIhth7GlwrDhd4DI

Genre: Funk/SoulCover: Donations @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+The AquaducksThe Aquaducks have been making waves in and around Music City as a high octane funk and soul band with a live energy that is rarely matched.

Who has not known grief and loss? There are so many experiences of grief…from losing your favorite toy to losing a loved one, from divorce and heartbreak to loss of financial security. It is at times so difficult and unbearable, but the pain of loss is often intensified and prolonged by your lack of understanding of your existence and the role grief, loss and death play in your life. This workshop is a journey into the understanding of these dynamics and the development of grace in your life. OBJECTIVES Clearly understand the processes of loss, pain and grief and their vital relationships to your awakening. Learn how to consciously encounter loss and grief with greater understanding, certainty and grace. Transform your ability to deal with loss and pain. BENEFITS Transform your experiences of loss and grief into acceptance through increased consciousness. Experience Grace as a natural outcome of letting-go. Utilize consciousness as the power to “see” through loss and see the appointed role of all events, good and bad, in your life.
