Smart Bets:

Blues legend Ironing Board Sam doesn’t actually play the laundry essential — but he did use that tool to build his own makeshift organ-style instrument. Hence the nickname, and the start of a decades-long career in blues, boogie-woogie and R&B. Ironing Board Sam will be at White Horse Black Mountain on Saturday, Sept. 17, for the latest in a series of concerts honoring the fabled Black Mountain venue McDibbs. He’ll be joined by Dan Lewis, another longtime Asheville musician. 8 p.m. $12.
