A couple of traveling, storytelling troubadours, a regional jazz collective and some Irish music just in time for St. Patrick’s Day — those are the topics of this installment.
Each week, Xpress highlights notable WNC crowdsourcing initiatives that may inspire readers to become new faces in the crowd. This week features a new documentary about Bob Moog’s life, as explored by his daughter; a collective jazz concert where six local composers’ works will be premiered by a 40-person orchestra; and a couple’s plan to bike 2,774 miles while supporting Homeward Bound.
This week’s roundup includes Fuzz, Lightbulb Jazz Orchestra, The Sword and John Scofield with Jon Cleary.
Two of these shows feature free admission, and two will set you back a non-trivial sum. But they’re all very much worthwhile, and represent ongoing proof that the Asheville area draws talent from all over on a level that belies our relatively small population.
This weekend, enjoy meditation, theater, cycling and more. As always, Xpress highlights the best in low-cost entertainment.
