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’.

Asheville Sessions: The Moon and You

This weeks musical session is local band The Moon and You. Rooted in the rich music scene of Asheville, NC, Ryan Furstenberg and Melissa Hyman began playing together for fun when both were part of successful bands touring the Southeast. When those bands went their separate ways, Furstenberg and Hyman chose to join forces rather than get a job. The result of this collaboration -- between an impossibly sassy cellist from New York and a whimsical fingerstyle guitarist from Eastern North Carolina -- is hard to forget, but easy to fall for.

Asheville Sessions: Ben Miller Band

Sometimes, do you wonder if the undercurrent of a towns' vibe calls out to artists and individuals who have the same kind of feel to them? Take for example the Ben Miller Band from Joplin, Missouri. We caught up with them during their first time in Asheville when they were performing at The Grey Eagle in the River Arts District. This talented trio combines bluegrass, delta blues, and the soul of Appalachia mountain music to make something hauntingly beautiful. It always surprises us when bands like this hail from other areas, as you would have expected them to have been born and raised right here in Western North Carolina.

Where Locals Drink Beer

The answer, of course, is: anywhere. Anywhere there’s beer. In the kitchen, the living room, even in the bathroom. Ashevilleans love their beer, and with good reason: it’s fresh and tasty and makes a persuasive case for moving here.

10 Things To Do With Out of Town Visitors

Your family and/or friends are in town for the holidays - what do you do? Recently someone in my family got married, which meant that some of my relatives from Oregon flew into town. This was their first time in North Carolina, and Asheville so I had to make sure to show them the sights and entertain them while making sure they enjoy the city. While it is easy for us to appreciate Asheville, there are certain things you just must introduce out-of-towners to so that they can appreciate the city and get a feel for our zany, eclectic culture. Here is a short list of things that I consider a 'must' for any Asheville tour.
