Check Out Local Live!
at White Horse Black Mountain,
1st and 3rd Monday of each month,
for world class local music and food.
Culture Shock will be bringing their fine New Orleans cuisine
The Local Live Series, presented twice monthly on the first and third Mondays, is hosted by Jay Brown. The series presents the best available local and regional talent in an informal setting, giving the artists the opportunity to perform music one wouldn't normally get to do in their "official" artistic lives. Guests perform solo, with Jay, and at times with others as well.
On 6/17, we feature performances by Chris Rosser and Carrie Cooper.
Chris Rosser is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, composer and producer. He has opened shows for John Mayer, Tom Rush, David Wilcox, John Gorka, Nickel Creek and more.
As a member of world music phenomenon Free Planet Radio, Chris plays Indian dotar, sarod, Turkish cumbus, melodica, piano and guitar. Having released four acclaimed albums, Free Planet Radio performed over 60 concerts at top concert halls in the Peoples Republic of China. Chris tours with master Turkish musician Faruk Tekbilek as well as renowned singer performer Lizz Wright.
Among the many awards he's received are grants from the Western North Carolina Regional Arts Grant and in 2003 and 2017 he received songwriter/composer fellowships from the North Carolina Arts Council
As a music producer, Chris has produced and engineered over 200 CD projects at his Asheville studio. He's composed music for Animal Planet, TLC, the Oprah Winfrey Network, PBS and more.
There's really not much Chris can't do but exceedingly well but, when asked, he refused to do windows.
