This week’s crowdfunding roundup spotlights hand-crafted local essential oils and hydrosols by Blue Ridge Aromatics, literary event Asheville Wordfest 2015, expansion of Copper Pot and Wooden Spoon’s jam and pickle production and a studio album by esoteric septet the Galen Kipar Project.
Asheville Wordfest, now in its seventh year, sets its sights beyond mere merriment. “It’s a reflection of what Asheville is, what matters to us, what we love,” says event founder and organizer says Laura Hope-Gill. “It’s about the whole community, the story of our community.”
This weekend brings film, karaoke (for the bold), spoken word and more. As always, Xpress highlights the best in low-cost weekend entertainment.
