Tracey Morgan Gallery is pleased to present two exhibitions, both opening Friday, August 3rd. SHARON CORE creates extensively researched explorations of the living still life. In both series exhibited, 1606-1907 and Understory, we see the play between the illusion of a painting and the truth of a photograph set amidst the natural cycles of decay and renewal. This will be Core’s first show with the gallery. DAWN ROE, a local artist, will be showing recent work from her series, Conditions for an Unfinished Work of Mourning. Roe produced works using digital photography and video as well as cyanotype. This work was made along a network of trails crossing through the Pyrenees Mountains, and it closely examines the sites surrounding the specific footpath taken by philosopher and cultural theorist Walter Benjamin during his ill-fated attempt to flee Nazi persecution in 1940, as well as related paths of exile traversed by over half a million refugees during The Spanish Civil War and World War II. The exhibition runs through September 22nd, 2018.

Could you be the voice for an abused/neglected child in the court system? Volunteers needed in Buncombe County North Carolina Guardian ad Litem Program 828-259-3443 or www.volunteerforgal.org for more info No experienced needed – all training and support provided Since January 1, 2017, 360 children have entered the Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program – this means that 343 kids are alleged to have been abused/neglected and are in the court system. Of no fault of their own, these kids are typically removed from their home and placed and in foster care or a kinship placement. Why were they removed from the home? Maybe their parents abused substances, had untreated mental health, or engaged in domestic violence – maybe it was a combination of these factors. Either way, it’s the kids who pay the ultimate penalty as their lives are uprooted, they often change school districts and are taken away from everything they know. There are so many parties in a DSS abuse/neglect case: the judge, parents/caretakers, parent’s attorneys, DSS attorneys, GAL attorneys, investigative/in-home/foster care social workers…it’s easy to see how the kids get lost in the system. That’s where the role of the Guardian ad Litem comes in: to advocate and ensure the voice of the child is heard in court, that their wishes for permanency and best interest are made known to all parties. With so many kids in the GAL program, our office is overwhelmed with cases, and we have a critical need for volunteers to represent children’s best interests in court. There is no experience necessary and we provide all training and support. Being a GAL is a challenging and demanding role, but also incredibly rewarding as you literally ensure the child’s voice is heard in court throughout the life of the case. Our next training begins mid-January – visit www.volunteerforgal.org to complete a volunteer application, or call the office at 828-259-3443 for more information. Could you be the voice for a child?

Genre: Rock/SoulCover: Donations @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+Kris Lager BandA genuine musical journeyman, Kris Lager brings a feel good musical experience everywhere he goes. One of those rare and dynamic performers who deliver a combination of musical ability and charisma, Kris Lager will make you want to dance, clap, and sing along creating a fun and interactive show laced with road tested songs, and contagious grooves. “I wanna lift up your spirits through song and dance!”, Says Kris Lager. “When music is created from a place of love and delivered with good intentions it is undeniably powerful. There’s nothing better than making the people around you feel good. The ultimate compliment for me is when folks come up to me at after a show and say I was having a horrible day or I was in a bad mood and now I feel great.”​Based out of Omaha, Nebraska Kris Lager Band has been zig zagging the country spreading their brand of “Feel Good Funk & Heavy Soul” for over 15 years. KLB latest album already garnering rave reviews and airplay all over the world is called ‘Love Songs & Life Lines’. It was recorded at White Wall Studios earlier this year in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and mixed by Grammy Award Winning Producer, Jim Gaines (Santana, Van Morrison, Steve Miller, Stevie Ray Vaughan). The album is a collection of love songs, and various heart tugging tunes featuring a more acoustic and Folksy/Americana side of Kris’ songwriting. The recording is a slight departure from their ‘Swaggering Rock ’n’ Roll’ and Blues infused electric guitar grooves that make up a lot their 2016 release ‘Rise & Shine’.Kris Lager Band is quietly establishing themselves as one of the most storied and treasured groups in the Midwest’s music scene. They honed their skills for many years in and around Nebraska when in 2007 they were invited to hit the road as indigenous. They backed up frontman and guitar hero, Mato Nanji for over two years and were featured on Indigenous’ Jamie Candiliro Produced (Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson) Vanguard Records release ‘Broken Lands’. You might also recognize Kris Lager from working and touring alongside Andy Frasco & The U.N. The group covered 3 of Kris’ songs on their 2014 release ‘Half A Man’ and have made ‘Sunny Day Souldier’ a staple at their live shows. This year they also featured the composition on their Ruf Records released live album, ‘Songs From The Road’. The Legendary Bluesman, Tab Benoit is also a fan. Proclaiming “These guys are the real deal! Go see them whenever they come to your town!” He produced and recorded KLB’s 2013 release ‘Platte River Runaway’ at his home studio in Houma, Louisiana. Soon after they worked with Tab Benoit they went to San Francisco and recorded with Bay area funk maestros, Monophonics at their Transistor Studios. The result was 2014’s ‘Heavy Soul & Boogie Trance’ mixed by Orgone’s Sergio Rios. The release caught the attention of Ohio’s Colemine Records, who released two of the tracks as a 45 and also featured the release on their internationally distributed Soul Slabs LP.web: http://www.krislagerband.com/vid: https://youtu.be/Hx34NqHNwxg

Description:
The classical ideals of truth have eroded under the weight of centuries of contradiction. The duality of "what is" and "what is not" can no longer substantiate our beliefs of truth. The uncertainty of quantum physics bleeds into our lives as we find facts inadequate to explain our modern being. Thus, we turn inward to the self and find that subjectivity is truth and it is infinite. Truth Decay, a New England DIPA, releases on August 10th in limited edition cans featuring the awe-inspiring art of Maxx Hawthorn-feist. With utmost certainty, we can say that this is not a beer to miss out on.

What’s new, what’s hot, which wines are folks talking about? Join us for this tasting to sample a trio of new and fantastic wines that are pleasing many palates. We’ve enjoyed a record summer of sales, and when you’re selling a lot of wine, you’ve got to stock a lot of wine. And you’ve got to keep it fresh with new selections from all parts of the globe. I’m confident that we do this job better than any other store in Western North Carolina. Come see us, and taste what I’m talking about. Taste, learn, and save every Friday at Table Wine! All of the featured tasting wines are 20% off by the bottle on tasting day only. 1. 2017 Mas Janeil Les Hauts de Janeil Blanc (Roussillon, France) – Talk about the perfect blend! 60% Grenache Blanc contributes ripe and spicy notes of apricot and exotic white flowers, while 40% Sauvignon Blanc adds bright citrus and crisp acidity. The finished product is a ton of wine for the money. For fans of the Cercius Blanc, you’ve got to try this. 2. 2017 Fontanavecchia Falanghina Taburno (Campania, Italy) – Falanghina is one of Southern Italy’s oldest and most important white grapes, and Fontanavecchia makes one of the country’s best versions. Consumed liberally in Southern Italy with seafood, it offers up rich, yet zesty notes of peach and tropical fruits, along with hints of flowers and freshly cut grass. 3. 2017 La Bastide Blanche Bandol Rose (Provence, France) – I love me some Tempier Bandol Rose, but man, the price on that one has gone way up. No problem, La Bastide Blanche produces a wine that rivals Tempier, but costs half the price. Primarily Mourvedre, from old, organically farmed vineyards, this one shows the more powerful, intense side of dry rose. The 2017 hasn’t been reviewed yet, but it’s never scored lower than 90 points.

Montford Park Players, an Asheville theatrical tradition, is proud to announce their upcoming production of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach, dramatized by Richard R. George. All performances will be held at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre at 92 Gay Street in the heart of Asheville’s historic Montford District, from August 10th through September 1st on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings at 7:30pm. This performance like ALL of Montford Park Players’ shows will be absolutely FREE to attend.

This show, which is appropriate for all ages, centers around the struggles of a boy following the loss of his parents. James, the boy, embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, sailing across the ocean on the titular giant peach, in search of a new life. With him on his journey, he has a sarcastic centipede, a nurturing spider, a pessimistic earthworm, a kindly ladybug, and a few other insect pals. Their journey takes James and his companions far from the home they knew, but teaches them some important life lessons along the way.
We hope you’ll continue your summer with a trip to the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre. It’s funny, it’s frivolous, and, as always with MPP productions, IT’S FREEǃ
Montford Park Players has been presenting Shakespeare and other classical works to the Asheville community since 1973, and has since grown to be one of Western North Carolina’s most beloved and well-known cultural attractions.

LinksNamed after Ukrainian nomads, Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays roots music from Celtic, Eastern European and Appalachian traditions with thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling songwriting, beckoning crowds into a barn-dance, rock concert experience. Founded almost a decade ago by two classically trained brothers, Alexander and Danylo Fedoryka, Nashville’s Music City Roots says Scythian is ‘what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling’, and the Washington Post dubbed them "DC's most energetic and eclectic band" and said “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.”

'Scythian has reinvented folk rock in America. For the past 20 years we've relied on hip hop to get people on the dance floor, when in reality they just haven't discovered this band yet.' -- iHeart Radio

“[Scythian gives] no quarter in their quest to entertain and bring a joy to their music that gives it an irony-free, wide open feel of manic possibility. The playing is technically brilliant, but it is the energy that carries the day." — Camel City Dispatch (Winston-Salem, NC)

WHERE: THE BLOCK off biltmore, 39 S. Market St, 28801WHEN: Friday August 17, 2018COVER: $10 DOORS: 8pm | SHOW: 9pmGENRE: old time / countryAGES: 21+WEB LISTINGFACEBOOK EVENT The Onlies:WEBSITEHEAR SOME MUSICSEE A VIDEOThe Onlies began as a trio of lifelong friends and musical collaborators who realized early on that they shared a fascination with traditional fiddle music. Leo Shannon, Samantha Braman, and Riley Calcagno started making music together at age seven (2005), and quickly became immersed in fiddle music and tradition in their home of Seattle, down the West Coast, and across the world. In recent years, they have developed their sound with the addition of Vivian Leva, an acclaimed talent of old-time, country, and Americana. The Onlies have developed an individual sound, with original songs that “demonstrate an enviable ability to move beyond the immediacy of their lives to touch at deeper truths, and...covers of traditional songs and tunes (that) harken to the original but are unleashed with the kind of wild, free abandon that only youth provides” (Kithfolk). Their albums have charted on radio stations around the country, and they have had the opportunity to perform and collaborate with Elvis Costello, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Laurie Lewis, Altan, Tristan Clarridge, and John Herrmann. In recent years, the Onlies have found a musical center in Old Time Appalachian stringband music, and their fiddle, banjo, and guitar playing have become a fixture in a wave of young people who are studying and engaging with the old time tradition with a deep respect for the history of the music and people who make it, as well as a curiosity about how old time music fits into contemporary sounds and culture. Their most recent collaboration is a recording of old time tunes and songs with John Herrmann, Meredith McIntosh, Eric Robertson, and Tristan Clarridge in a project titled The Ruglifters (Yodel-Ay-ee 099). Vivian Leva's charting solo debut, Time is Everything was released on Free Dirt Records in 2018 as well. They are the 2017 winners of the Appalachian Stringband Contest in Clifftop, WV. The Onlies have a lot to say in the future of American folk and traditional music.Vivian Leva:WEBSITEHEAR SOME MUSICSEE A VIDEOVivian Leva’s voice is the sound of living tradition. Raised by parents who absorbed ancient tunes and ballads during visits to legendary old-time musicians, Leva grew up steeped in the Appalachian and country music of her Lexington, VA home. On Time Is Everything (coming spring 2018), her label debut, Leva earns a spot in the lineage of great neo-traditional songwriters like Gillian Welch and Sarah Jarosz. And much like these singers, Leva finds inspiration in the past without being stifled by it.Though still in college, Leva’s musical roots run deep. She grew up going to fiddle festivals with her parents, both acclaimed roots musicians themselves who perform as the duo Jones and Leva. Her father, James, is a respected multi-instrumentalist who learned knee-to-knee from old-time legends like Tommy Jarrell and Doug Wallin, while her mother, Carol Elizabeth, picked up bygone songs from a now lost generation of singers and recorded with the pioneering bluegrass duo Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard. Leva soaked up this influence at a young age, and, at age 9, began penning songs and performing with her father at venues like the prestigious Carter Family Fold.Traditional American music was an early influence on her songwriting. Her time at music festivals (she’s never missed a Clifftop) regularly landed her in jams with roots music heavyweights like Dirk Powell, Caleb Klauder, and Pharis & Jason Romero. “The biggest part of traditional music has always been the community,” she says. “It’s really special that you can travel almost anywhere and share tunes with a group of people that you’ve never met.” In this spirit, she joined The Onlies, a young stringband that won the coveted traditional band competition at the 2017 Clifftop festival in West Virginia. Add to this performance resumé teaching stints at The Swannanoa Gathering, The Big Sur Fiddle Camp, and Centrum’s “Voice Works” and her roots music bonafides are obvious, but it’s Leva’s songwriting that’ll bowl you over.The sonic and lyrical palette of Time Is Everything, which was recorded at Joseph DeJarnette’s Studio 808A in Floyd, VA, is influenced in equal parts by classic storytellers like Kitty Wells and Texas Gladden, the harmony singing of the Stanley and Everly Brothers, and the pop sensibilities of Mandolin Orange. Leva’s writing effortlessly shifts between archaic ballads, classic country and honky tonk, and the best of contemporary Americana. For her first solo record, she enlisted the talents of multi-instrumentalist Riley Calcagno (The Onlies) as well as other top notch collaborators (Jack Devereux, Eric Robertson, Nick Falk, and Joseph “Joebass” DeJarnette) to add fiddle, banjo, pedal steel, and percussion to the album’s tastefully minimal production, imbuing each story of love and heartbreak with a hearty emotional punch.The album’s title didn’t come easily until she noticed a lyrical through-line: the passing of time. “The phrase “Time Is Everything” encompasses the main theme of all of the songs,” she says. “It’s really about how everything in a situation can seem right but it all comes down to timing. That’s especially true in a relationship.” The tasteful Americana rendition of the title track, a co-write with musical partner Riley Calcagno, exemplifies this ephemeral longing. However, stories of wandering eyes or missed connections also show up in the straight-ahead honky tonk of “Why Don’t You Introduce Me As Your Darling,” the country shuffle of “Bottom of the Glass” (a song she wrote at age 14), and the old-time stringband-influenced “No Forever.” The album features eight originals plus a cover of Paul Burch’s plaintive waltz “Last Of My Kind,” and a re-composed version of Virginia ballad singer Texas Gladden’s “Cold Mountains” with a new chorus written by Leva and Calcagno.For Leva, the kernel of a song often appears spontaneously—a story from a close friend, a closing scene of a TV show, a new guitar tuning. “If I specifically sit down to write something, I usually don’t like it. But I play around with different starting places.” Once the scene is set, however, the song is often complete in less than an hour. “It’s always hard to express real feelings without being overly sentimental, to balance a specific story and the universal.” Rest assured, this album strikes the balance perfectly.It’s rare to find such a mature and confident voice in a young artist—someone whose music springs so organically from a grassroots connection to the traditional music community in which she was raised. Time Is Everything is indeed a bold statement from this rising star of deeply rooted American music. Vivian Leva is a voice that deserves to be listened to in the coming years.

Genre: Reggae/SkaCover: Donations @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+The Big TakeoverSince 2007, the New York six-piece The Big Takeover has been fulfilling the mission implied in their name: packing clubs in the city and upstate and building their brand and reputation on the road and in the studio. A far cry from the pop-punk of American ska, The Big Takeover take their cues from Desmond Dekker and the first wave of Jamaican pop music as well as from the soulful energy and sophistication of Motown. At the center of this tight, grooving ensemble is the live-wire singing and deceptively subtle songwriting of the Jamaican-born NeeNee Rushie, a powerhouse performer who makes the audience feel like accomplices more than spectators. Traditional and experimental, The Big Takeover’s global blend reveals deep fluency in reggae and world music, hints of soul, and a pop classicism that is their own thing entirely. In New York’s musically hopping Mid-Hudson Valley, they are only the band around that is welcomed and honored at all the major national-circuit rooms: the indie/experimental haven of BSP in Kingston, the jazz and blues gem that is the Falcon in Marlboro, the classic rock mecca of the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock. The Big Takeover packs them all. On the road, the band has played over 500 shows, sharing stages with The Original Wailers, Jefferson Starship, Eek-a- Mouse, the Slackers and more. The band was recently selected to participate in a Converse Rubber Tracks Session in Brooklyn NY, and released their fourth full-length record, ‘Silly Girl’ at the beginning of 2017- to critical acclaim. A national tour to celebrate its release is in the works.web: https://www.bigtakeoverband.com/vid: https://youtu.be/WRmFabe8XAI

Description:
Already longing to be back at the beach? We've got you covered! As summer winds to an end, fiber artist, Anne Magrath, will show you how to create your own needle felted mermaid so you can return to the sea (or, at least your memories) anytime you'd like! In this fun-filled, two-day workshop, you'll learn the basics of needle felting a human face and torso; then let your imagination run as you give your mermaid a tail, hair, and her own whimsical personality! First, we'll discuss what fibers are appropriate for creating a needle felted structure and finishing a piece. Next, you'll learn how to build a 3D form using a wire frame. Then, you'll explore different techniques for blending, shaping, and attaching wool and exotic fibers to your mermaid. Finally, you'll practice your skills as you continue to build and refine your piece and bring your mermaid to life!
