Smart Bets: Ironing Board Sam and Dan Lewis

S.C.-born blues keyboardist Sammie Moore may have earned his stage name, Ironing Board Sam, because, according to his bio, he "designs and sews his own intricate stage costumes." He's also invented a baby bottle holder, a button keyboard and can "produce free electricity for an entire apartment complex with a machine that has only five moving parts." In his career, spanning six decades, Sam has "amassed a staggering repertoire of both originals and classic blues and R&B songs," some of which he'll perform on stage at The White Horse on Friday, June 15. Local singer-songwriter Dan Lewis shares the bill (the two first met at former Asheville venue Caesar's Parlor in the late '70s). 8 p.m., $12.
