Reliving LEAF

The cold and wet weather didn’t bring revelers down at last weekend’s Lake Edens Art Festival. Check out our photo gallery by Jonathan Welch for proof. This year the local music and arts festival featured Asheville favorites such as neo-soul swooners the Secret B-Sides, as well as a wealth of national acts: Brazilian party band Forro in the Dark, hip-hop stars Arrested Development and world-soul queen Zap Mama (all featured in the footage).

We dispatched regular correspondent Jake Frankel with a flip video camera to cover some of the sights and sounds of the festivities.
