Asheville Sessions: Seth Walker

Troubadour Seth Walker was born and raised here in North Carolina. Currently residing in New Orleans, Walker’s music has a NOLA influence, with gospel soaked fervor and gritty guitar in a funky melting pot flavor. The driving delivery and infectious down-home style of Seth Walker’s voice and songs resonate with Blues and Roots music. Listening to the intricate fretwork displayed in his music, it’s hard to believe that Seth’s first instrument was cello, learned at age 5. We could go on and on, but instead we encourage you to grab a beer, sit down, and check out his music for yourself. We met up with Seth at the release for his new album Sky So Blue at The Grey Eagle, here in the River Arts District. Check out the acoustic session we recorded in the Grey Eagle Green Room. This soul soothing song is called ‘Trouble’.

Adoptable Pet of the Week: Ferrari

Meet Ferrari! This beautiful, petite lady came to Asheville Humane Society nursing four kittens - all orange! She and her babies were cared for in a loving foster home until it was time for adoption. Ferrari is shy and timid, and prefers to find a quiet spot to observe the activities going on around her. She enjoys gentle petting and needs a quiet home to come out of her shell. Earning her trust will take a little time, but we know this stunning mama is worth it! Ferrari does like the company of other kitties. All cats and kittens are FEE-WAIVED through August 2nd, to make room for **over 200 kittens** who are currently in foster care. We would love to see Ferrari out of the busy Adoption Center and into a peaceful, forever home! Is this blue-eyed girl the one for you?
