Holidays 2018-19

Holiday Windows 2018-19

The theme of the downtown holiday windows in 2018 was “Appalachian Holiday.” Music is such a powerful part of these mountains. Music moves us, tells stories. Both the Christmas Jam (30 year anniversary this year) and the Swannanoa Solstice (15th year?) are unique experiences to Asheville.

The music of these performances is such a blend of many traditions with an Appalachian spin. Music, like yarn crafts, connects us and draws on many traditions. And what fun to try to knit and crochet musical instruments! MOUNTAIN MUSIC & YARNS: Picking Us Up and Knitting (or Stitching) Us Together – AGAIN and AGAIN!
