The first of three streamed concerts in partnership with Baker Booking of Asheville on Friday with David Jacobs-Strain was a gem, said Barking Legs officials. Things have come a long way from the awkward, stumbling efforts at online presentation early in the pandemic. This Sunday, Barking Legs be hosting another streamed concert featuring the Black Feathers. Like David, this British duo has put a lot of work into making their online concerts special experiences for their audience, said officials.
Review for The Black Feathers:
The Black Feathers is a splendid duo coming live from the UK. This pair is absolutely captivating! Americana, Folk, and Acoustic Indie Rock sensibilities coexist comfortably in their musical world, with Hughes’ guitar work buoying the kind of harmonies often only heard in family bands. Their music quickly draws the interest of listeners, but it is their chemistry that keeps the audience riveted.
Suggested donation of $10-15 per household can be made in advance or during the performance. Donations will be shared by the Feathers and Barking Legs.
Nathan Bell's concert on the Barking Legs backyard garden stage made for one of the most satisfying afternoons we've spent in a long time, said officials. More events are planned for this unique urban garden, which features a collection of stone sculptures by the late Bob Dombrowski.
Plans for this week's edition of Wednesday Jazz did not work out, so organizers will use it as a week for planning. It would like to build on the evening of streaming live with the Alan Wyatt Trio, but need to pursue some alternative funding options, since the usual income streams for Wednesday Jazz ($5 cover and concession sales) are both out for now.
