BET UNCAFest Steep Canyon Rangers barn

BET UNCAFest Steep Canyon Rangers barnUNC Asheville is presenting its first Arts Fest, and if the name sounds broad, that’s because it is. Highlights of the eclectic lineup include musical acts Steep Canyon Rangers and David Holt and the Lightning Bolts as well as a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, set in contemporary Asheville. Poetry slams, creative writing workshops, photography exhibits and even an Anagama kiln firing fill out the schedule. The Arts Fest runs from Thursday, April 10-Sunday, April 13 on UNCA’s campus. Many of the events are free, while others (yes, like the Steep Canyon Rangers show) are ticketed. For full scheduling and pricing, visit arts.unca.edu/ARTSfest. Photo by David McClister
