This year’s Bele Chere is packed with local and regional performers representing Cullowhee, Sylva, Boone, Hendersonville and, of course, Asheville. Style-wise, they cover rock, folk, soul, hip-hop, funk-hop, gypsy-jazz and steel-pan fusion. Oh, and pop. And mountain music. And reggae. The list goes on: add to it yourself at these sets.
