A NEW SERIES!!! WE’VE PARTNERED WITH OUR FRIEND SHELTON STEELE FOR SOME EVENINGS TO HELP YOU ELEVATE YOUR SMOKING GAME! LEARN FROM THE SEASONED AND PROFESSIONALS THEMSELVES! We’ll discuss the different tools, techniques, tips and myths of what it takes to make the BEST BBQ. It’s easy to make good, it’s the extra knowledge and experience that can make it GREAT. Shelton grew up on a Polled Hereford beef farm in Statesville, NC. His early childhood bbq memories were the family pilgrimages to Keaton's BBQ, famous for its no-nonsense customer service and bbq chicken. Ironically, Shelton had to leave NC to start his formal bbq education. He moved to Arizona in 2006, while his wife attended medical school. Shelton partnered with a friend to open BBQ Island, Arizona's largest outdoor kitchen grill store. Selling gas grills led to selling smokers, and smokers led to bbq festivals and classes. Some of the nation's top pit master's taught at BBQ Island. Shelton's BBQ mentor was an award winning Kansas City pit master named Chris Marks. Shelton worked with Chris to put on a dozen bbq classes in AZ and NC. Shelton competed with Chris and his Three Little Pigs BBQ team at the American Royal in Kansas City in 2011, and again in 2012.  Shelton returned to Asheville in 2013. He immediately started competing at Asheville's only bbq competition, KnuckleDeep BBQ. His team, ThunderPig Allstars, has won numerous awards. Shelton has also catered Beer City Festival and Brewgrass, and he also hosts an annual bbq fundraiser at Hall Fletcher Elementary.   Shelton’s smoking classes are designed to teach bbq as a life skill. The classes will cover the fundamentals of slow and low bbq, while also sharing the competition tricks and techniques that create consistency every time you cook.

Description:
Karyn Oliver has been described a ‘fiery folk singer’ (The Alternate Root) and ‘one of the most incredible voices on the acoustic music scene’ (WFDU.) Isis Music Hall is continuing a tradition of bringing the best in national touring music acts to downtown Asheville by inviting Oliver for a return performance, this time in support of a brand-new CD, ‘A List of Names,’ on Thursday, August 22nd. Oliver’s performances bring to mind a touch of Janis Joplin, a dash of Joan Osborne, and a healthy helping of Emmy Lou Harris. Her musical inspirations come primarily from the eclectic mix of music of her Washington, D.C. childhood. Her songwriting has won many coveted accolades , including Kerrville New Folk and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist Finalist spots, and 1st place in the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. Fans of modern musical storytellers like Mary Gauthier will want to give Oliver’s latest work ‘A List of Names,’ a listen. The album title is a clue to the songs Oliver delivers in this powerful collection. ‘Dawn’ is the story of an unwelcome child (‘Mama can’t forgive her the way she came to this world,’) ‘Edwina’ recalls memories of a girlhood friend (‘you were the queen when we were young, Annie Oakley with your gun,’) and ‘Cordelia’, about a misunderstanding with a loved one. Some songs are names of places, like ‘St. Joseph,’ the story of a school named for a saint (‘St. Joseph never would have built this place.’) There are songs that are positively empowering (‘About Enough’ and ‘Beautiful.’) ‘A List of Names’ will be available for sale and signing at the show. The music starts at 7 pm on Thursday, August 22nd at Isis Music Hall and Kitchen. Tickets are $15 and may be bought online at www.isisasheville.com or at the door. Limited tables are available with a dinner reservation. All other seating is first-come first-serve general admission. Call the venue at 828-575-273 for table reservations. Isis Music Hall is located at 743 Haywood Ave. in Asheville. For more about Karyn Oliver visit www.karynoliver.com

King, and Crosby Stills and Nash, Barrett discovered Bluegrass and Folk Music, and the rich history of his home in Bristol, Tennessee. Barrett went on to earn a Bachelors Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Bluegrass, Old Time and Country Music, while also leading the well-known local band, The Rickshaw Roadshow, who toured the southeast and released an EP and 2 full-length Albums from 2012 to 21015.His latest outfit, The Green Fingers, is a four-piece, all-original band which Barrett deems, Americana Soul Music. Those who listen can largely expect excellent guitar playing under a raspy soulful vocal melody, and all-original music. the bands indelible trademark is Barretts vocal, a smooth and memorable white-soul croon that calls to mind other distinctive frontmen of the genre, without expressly imitating themScruffington Post, January 2018

Love French wines? If you answered yes, join us this Saturday for our free wine tasting featuring an all-star cast of Frenchies. Our bigger and better Saturday wine tastings continue to be well received. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Stop by this week to sample 5 unique and diverse, small grower/producer wines from the varied vineyards of France. From the Loire Valley and Burgundy to Bordeaux and Gascogne, this promises to be the best free wine tasting in Asheville. Stop by, taste, learn, and save every Saturday at Table Wine. Asheville’s Best Free Wine Tasting – Just stop by – we’ve got plenty of free parking! Don’t forget, all the featured tasting wines are 20% off by the bottle on tasting day. 1. Surprise Wine – We usually end with a surprise wine, but this week we’re going to start with one. If you love the crisp and mineralic whites of the Loire Valley, come early to get a taste of this one. We’ll only open one bottle. 2. 2017 Domaine Thevenet et Fils Macon Pierreclos (Burgundy, France) – Thevenet’s Macon is one of the cheapest ways to get real-deal, high quality White Burgundy in your belly. From vineyards averaging 45-50 years of age, this is 100% Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel and aged on the fine lees. Possessing lovely notes of apple, pear, lemon and spice, this zesty, no-oak Chardonnay is fantastic this vintage. 3. 2015 Vignerons de Buxy Pinot Noir-Gamay (Burgundy, France) – This deliciously fresh blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay is downright charming. Medium to light-bodied, low in tannin, and possessing pure flavors of ripe strawberry, raspberry, and subtle earthy accents, it is perfect for hot summer days. I’ll take two. 4. 2018 Domaine Duffour Cotes de Gascogne Rouge (Gascogne, France) – Oh my goodness, this stuff is great! We’ve long been fans of their crisp white, but their red is new to the store and all of us are in love with it. For less than $10, you get a ton of wine! A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 15% Tannat fermented in tank, it’s fresh, fruit forward, and way too easy to drink. 5. 2016 Vieux Manoir Bordeaux (Bordeaux, France) – Vintage 2016 was fantastic in Bordeaux and here’s your chance to experience the quality of the vintage without breaking the bank. A blend of 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc, this medium to full-bodied red is supple and charming. Look for ripe notes of plum and dark cherry along with more complex notions of earth, mineral and spice.

Description:

Oliver Padgett is a multi instrumentalist with an infatuation for acoustic music. During his sophomore year at Western Carolina University, amidst the pursuit of a Philosophy degree, Oliver wrote and produced his 2016 album, Waves from the comfort of his dorm room. The songs from this album recapped the down fall of Olivers first romantic relationship and the complexity of resilience in the face of heartbreak. During the summer of 2017, Oliver left for Alaska to embark on a different type of journey. Encountering the last frontier, and leaving with a sense of awakening, led to a second collection of songs entitled, the Echoes Collection, released in the summer of 2018 as a playlist on Spotify, and as a series of singles on all other platforms. Since the release of the first album, Oliver has opened for Steve Poltz, performed on the world wide Youtube platform Sofar Sounds, and incurred thousands of Spotify listeners across the globe.

Description:
Genre: DanceCover: $5 @ the DoorShow/Doors: 10PMAges: 21+ 'Lose Yourself to Dance Party' w/ DJ Marley Carroll "Lose Yourself To Dance" is Asheville's premiere dance party series. Guided by his well-honed instincts developed over years of touring and club DJing, Marley Carroll guides packed audiences through a marathon set that is frequently surprising and always satisfying. From classic hip-hop and soul to contemporary indie dance hits to obscure afrobeat, funk, disco and everything in between, no genre or era is out-of-bounds. This is a dance party for fans of music!" More about Marley Carroll Hailing from the misty mountains of Asheville, NC, Marley Carroll has been making waves as a thoughtful, sophisticated electronic producer with a penchant for melancholy melodies and warm, silvery vocals. Known as “the producer’s producer,” Carroll commands respect among his peers and a steadily-growing audience of fans. A classically trained pianist and percussionist, but never content to color inside the lines, he became the youngest ever to win the title of Best Scratch DJ for his home state of North Carolina – at 17. In the years since, he has never stopped evolving, undergoing a full transformation into a veteran producer, DJ, and dynamic live performer. His self-produced 2007 debut album Melanaster was the result of meticulous bedroom alchemy, recalling a lost Radiohead LP submerged in ten feet of saltwater. The album’s sonic signature can be found somewhere between the beautiful haze of early ’90s shoegaze rock (My Bloody Valentine) and early 2000s IDM (Autechre, Squarepusher). Smeared, melancholy pop songs tethered to abstract electronic rhythms, or what NPR called “gorgeously subdued glitch-pop.” In 2011, Carroll truly came into his own as a producer and live performer. He developed a solo PA set to bring a more raw and improvisatory vision of his music to live audiences, combining vocals, turntables, hardware controllers, and analog Moog synth. His onstage performances are exercises in understated talent that mix live vocals with stunning and unorthodox turntablist skills over a bed of sophisticated electronica. In 2012, he toured with forward-thinking producers like Shigeto, Dabrye, and Emancipator, and appeared at groundbreaking music festivals across the country (Moogfest, Decibel, Coachella). The galvanic dance floor energy of larger audiences infused his drum-driven 2012 EP R&S / Cedars, and its title track garnered a favorable feature from XLR8R. Steadily, national attention was building for Carroll’s unique style of subtle and compelling dance music. In December 2013 he released Sings, a new full-length LP that combines the best of his recent instrumental work with his considerable skills as a songwriter. A densely propulsive electronic album rooted in forest imagery, Sings received universal critical acclaim, drawing praise from tastemakers like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Bandcamp and Impose Magazine. Sings was named NC’s Best Album Of 2013 by YES! Weekly. “Marley Carroll is connoisseur of groove, a tastemaker with a diverse palette and great attention to detail. Gifted in the dark arts of composition, production and turntablism, Marley Carroll is a veteran in the making.” - Emancipator Marley Carroll is currently unsigned. He releases music via Melanaster Records, a self-run label.

Description:
Our clients report time and time again the need to increase the quality of meeting time and effective communication that results in continued learning and improved outcomes. This program lays out a simple but powerful platform for anyone wishing to improve the quality of their communication, increase their ability to motivate and inspire others, and enhance their skills in creating effective presentations. Ultimately, the goal is to increase the implementation of innovative and sustainable outcomes. Having this skill increases your value and influence, as well as your ability to design and create high level learning outcomes in groups and teams. A primary reason meetings are not effective is that those running them do not understand how learning and engagement happen; therefore, meetings are not designed or faclilitated to reach high level outcomes but are largely used for information downloads. This program gives you the tools to make effective presentations and design productive meetings.. And it is so easy! Using innovative MindSpring products, you will: Learn the difference between basic information, both interesting and boring, and engagement. Extend your repertoire in developing and implementing presentations that maximize dynamic thinking and innovation. Create learning processes in group settings that lead to high-level learning and change. Design learning maps that guide yourself and others to peak performance outcomes. Walk away having expanded your ability to design effective presentations and meetings. FAQs What should I expect? Following a beginning foundation of the subject matter, all of our programming and instructional processes are highly experiential and are based upon the dynamics and needs of the groups. You will not find canned-ham programming in any of our workshops. Our materials are of the highest quality, unique and are relevant and applicable to your everyday life. The program begins promptly at 8:30 AM each morning and ends around 4:30 PM. The last day of the program usually ends a little earlier. How should I dress? Business casual. What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from Asheville? There is ample parking on our campus. You can also use the large parking lot across the street behind the church should overflow occur.
