SCOTT AINSLIE

Sun Aug 3rd  8:00pm
Tickets: $12 in advance / $15 at the door 
   
Scott Ainslie is a traditional acoustic Blues singer, guitarist, historian and songwriter with personal roots in the Civil Rights era and a great affection for cross-cultural exchange. He is a powerful musician, a fine singer, and a masterful storyteller.

As a traditional musician with expertise in both the Southern Appalachian fiddle and banjo tradition, and Piedmont and Delta Blues, Ainslie has specialized in performing and presenting programs on the African roots of American music and culture in community and educational settings.  Ainslie has spent the past thirty years looking for the right story – the right set of facts, the right bit of history – to introduce a song. He offers us a personality, a moment in history, a vignette to entice us into a song and to give that song a chance to wake and breathe among us like a living thing.

POETRY ALIVE 
Celebrates 30 Years
of Presenting Poetry Performance Like Nothing Else

Fri Aug 15th  2:00pm until ......
Tickets: $12 


The City of Asheville has proclaimed August 15th as "Poetry Alive! Day" !!!!!!

Founded in 1984, Poetry Alive! conducted its first show in a music hall called McDibb's in Black Mountain, North Carolina. The audience was made up of about 100 listeners, friends mostly. One audience member was a teacher who saw the educational potential of the show and subsequently asked Poetry Alive! to visit her classes. That was our simple start.

In the nearly 30 years since then, Poetry Alive! has added four other two-person teams to meet the demand for shows. Our presentations have taken us to a total audience of over 10 million, in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia, Argentina, the Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, China, Guam, Ethiopia, Japan, Peru, Puerto Rico, Saipan, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey, and Venezuela. Each year Poetry Alive! now conducts approximately 2,200 performances, over 700 classroom followups, and 100 teacher workshops for an estimated 600,000 students nationwide.

That's something worth celebrating and that's exactly what we plan to do.....lots of great stories from the past plus lots of great poetry ....old and new.
