Virtually every day of the year, there’s a concert, gallery opening, shindig, festival, exhibition, performance or jam session ready to catch your eye or ear. From the Brevard Music Festival to the countless Community Centers serving up house bands and covered dish suppers, these hills are alive with every kind of music and performance art imaginable.
Art and craft go hand in hand with the mountains, too. From the potter’s wheel to the blacksmith’s forge, craft experiences are as varied as this epic landscape. Inspired by the work seen in individual studios and galleries, you just might decide that a second (or third) career as a glass blower, fiber artist or furniture maker is in your future. If so, consider The Bascom, John C. Campbell Folk School, Mud Dabbers Pottery or Haywood Community College.
