To celebrate 10 years of live acoustic music, Mountain Spirit Coffeehouse is planning a benefit event with nine performances and “other possible guests” to grow on. Prolific local musician Chris Rosser is compiling an anniversary CD to commemorate the occasion and boost event proceeds, which benefit the LEAF Schools and Streets program and Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville (the venue from which the concert series operates). In addition to Rosser, the lineup includes Ray Chesna, Michael Reno Harrell, Annie Lalley and Joe Ebel, Al Petteway and Amy White, Friction Farm, Dana and Susan Robinson, Zoe and Cloyd and Tim Grimm. UUCA will host the acoustic performances on Sunday, May 17, beginning at 6:30 p.m. $17/$20 ($15 students). uuaasheville.org/mountain-spirit-coffeehouse.
