Asheville Concerts: Downtown After Five this Friday Night

July 15, 2016   Downtown After Five   Free live music entertainment in downtown Asheville.  The celebration is every third Friday, May through September, with the goal of encouraging locals and visitors to enjoy downtown Asheville and support local businesses and entertainers.  

Opener: Sweet Claudette
These vintage country Asheville ladies will captivate audiences with their 4, 5, and 6-part harmonies. Those harmonies combined with brilliant songwriting and outstanding musicianship set Sweet Claudette apart from the crowd

Headliner: Anderson East
Classic soul mixed with youthful enthusiasm, Anderson’s authentic southern R&B charms audiences across the country. Anderson tours this spring with Grammy winner, Chris Stapleton.

Plenty of local, regional and national beers, as well as wine, water and soda, will be available for purchase. Also, local food vendors will have everything from BBQ to ice cream, boiled peanuts to tacos.

To purchase alcohol, attendees must first purchase a $2 wristband. Proceeds from wristband sales go to an area nonprofit. July's partner is Homeward Bound, a nonprofit that works to end homelessness in Western North Carolina by moving people into housing of their own and providing the support they need to stay housed for good.

The event is located on North Lexington Avenue (between Hiawassee and the I-240 overpass).
