Lee Pate, Asheville Resident, practices his flute playing under the Interstate 240 Overpass on North Lexington at 2 a.m. Sunday morning, March 20. Pate says the acoustics caused by the concrete help him to hear the notes clearer. I don’t know about that. But there is something hauntingly beautiful about flute sounds in the wee morning hours on a deserted street.
