Noonday Feast plays a solstice show at White Horse

The Winter Solstice marks the shortest, darkest day of the year, and since ancient times it’s been marked by celebrations as the sun makes its slow return. Asheville band Noonday Feast brings the celebration to the White Horse Black Mountain on Sunday, December 22 at 7:30 pm.

Noonday Feast takes its name from an Irish jig, heralding the group’s musical base in Celtic music. Their influences also include folk, blues and light rock, all of which can be heard in their arrangements of traditional and original material.

Although the band is new, the musicians are an experienced bunch. Ryan Kurczak is a veteran of Asheville Irish sessions and plays mandolin, guitar and bass with Noonday Feast. Linda Go is familiar to many in the Asheville area as a singer and songwriter, who also brings her skills on mandolin and bodhran to the band. Violinist Marilia also sings, as does bouzouki and guitar player Tim. They’ll be joined by special guest Jacquelyn on bass and voice. The multitude of instruments and voices allows Noonday Feast to create a variety of sparkling musical textures to light up the dark.

Show starts at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $10.
