Want to check out the sounds of Asheville’s local performers before you swing by their performances at Bele Chere? If only there was some easy way to hear what they sounded like before you committed yourself to walking all the way down to the stage through those overcrowded streets. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. For a sample of the sounds, check out our streaming audio player by clicking here, and then clicking on the “Bele Chere Local Band Mix 2007” button.
