Music venues remain closed, but there are glimmers of hope for their future with Phase 2 of Gov. Roy Cooper’s re-opening plan taking effect May 22. For now, livestreams are still the way to get your concert fix, and among the plentiful local options are folk singer Stephen Evans’ regular performances on Instagram.
Pulling from his LP Something to Bleed and EP Under the Bridge, Evans has no shortage of material for his digital shows. For a sample of these offerings, scroll down to see him giving an exclusive performance for Xpress and Acoustic Asheville, captured on a rainy day in Waynesville and featuring three original songs.

Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.
The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service.
