Dangermuffin 10:30PM “Heritage—it’s more than a place on the map. In their sixth and most purposeful album to date, Dangermuffin’s Heritage takes listeners on an eight-song exploration to the roots of human knowledge, before spirituality became “organized.” Where are we really from? Through “Ancient Family” to “One Last Swim,” we meet the seeker of truth, looking for wisdom from our prediluvian ancestors. Water and the ocean serve as repeated metaphors in a storyline of healing through spiritual awareness. Recorded, in part, at the Unitarian Church in Charleston, a National Historic Landmark where congregations have sought truth with open hearts and minds since its founding in 1772, the album’s inception and creation echo its motives and message. Heritage is about getting to the shared roots of humanity, and following that all the way out to the branches where the forbidden fruit—the muffin, sweet and simple—begs to be plucked and consumed. But don’t take a bite without an open heart.” The Freeway Revival 9:00PM What’s in a name? Sometimes nothing, and sometimes everything. In the case of Asheville’s own The Freeway Revival, the latter certainly seems to ring true. Theirs is music that was born from the energy and the spirit that comes from a life spent on the road, and the packed tour schedule they have maintained since their inception has strengthened their sound- a healthy mix of guitar driven soul and rock n roll with a flare of psychedelic, complimented by four part vocal harmonies. Their new album “Revolution Road” will be released in this Hometown Celebration on Nov 18th “A well-written, superbly played collection, the album (Revolution Road) displays the group’s distinctive character… Listeners who appreciated Delaney & Bonnie in the ’70s — or who enjoy the Tedeschi Trucks Band today — will find a similarly eclectic and soulful mindset at work in the music of The Freeway Revival… Armed with its unique set of assets, The Freeway Revival seems poised for wider recognition.” – Bill Kopp – music journalist, historian, author
