Swanannoa Gathering - Traditional Songs begins the Annual Event in Asheville Today

July 7 - 13    Swanannoa Gathering - Traditional Songs    A comprehensive program completely devoted to traditional styles of singing. Unlike programs where singing takes a back seat to the instrumentalists, it is the entire focus of this week, which aims to help restore the power of songs within the larger traditional music scene. This year’s program has several new features.

The week’s first night will feature the Gathering’s own Grand Ole Opry, with folks who have performed regularly on the Nashville stage. “Too Slim” from Riders in the Sky will emcee the evening with his hilarious Opry humor and his upright bass.
