Thank you for always being such a great friend of The Orange Peel. Your continued support means so much to us!

But, we still need your help!

Thanks to you, the Save Our Stages Act passed in the House of Representatives — but as you may know, it’s not law yet. We’re pushing to get it included in the next COVID-19 Relief package, which is being negotiated now – and we need your voice (again) ASAP.

The situation gets more dire with each passing day. With no emergency relief, hundreds of venues have already shuttered forever, through no fault of their own.

Even if you’ve done it before, can you please take 30 seconds to remind your Congressional representatives that you want them to pass the next COVID-19 Relief Act now and include crucial assistance for independent venues and promoters. Just click here to Save Our Stages.

When legislators hear from you it makes all the difference – and can help us get this across the finish line. On behalf of the nearly 3,000 members of the National Independent Venue Association, thank you for your continued support.

You don’t know what you’ve got ‘till it’s gone…

You can also donate directly to The Orange Peel to help us get through this difficult time. Just click here!

Isis Music Hall and Kitchen, a family-owned and operated business, is housed in a historic renovated theater in the heart of West Asheville. In this interview we learn how they have pivoted to safely provide dinner and a show in midst of 2020 craziness.

While we’ve all had to adjust to the “new normal” (whatever that is), our local business owners and managers have their own stories to tell about how they’ve been affected and what they are doing during these unprecedented times. Dig Local is proud to interview some of the awesome folks who make Asheville, Asheville.

Hadestown The Musical
Nov 28 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Peace Center

show

Welcome to Hadestown, where a song can change your fate. Winner of eight 2019 Tony Awards® and the 2020 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Theater Album, this acclaimed new musical by celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin (NatashaPierre & The Great Comet of 1812) is a love story for today… and always.

Hadestown intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers, and singers, Hadestown is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.

Mixing elements of electronic, dance and traditional music genres such as drum and bass, house, break beats, electro funk, dub, trip hop, lofi hip hop and more- whatever it is, Space Kadet will make you dance and leave you in a trance. With Prakash and Etheridge’s history of producing music together as well as the virtuosity of Garrett’s guitar abilities proves that the versatility and cohesiveness of this 3 piece band surpasses many others. The band combines live improv, technical chops and atmospheric sounds with live electronic production and soaring guitar melodies. This electronic trio has been making waves through out the south east and beyond over the past 5 years. Originating in Auburn, AL, the band now resides in their home city of Atlanta, GA. Space Kadet has had the honor of sharing the stage as direct support and with fellow friends/road warriors such as The Floozies, Lotus, STS9, Manic Focus, Papadosio, Sunsquabi, Russ Liquid Test, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Marvel Years, Flamingosis, SoDown, Chachuba and many more. 2019 marks a notable year for the trio as they released their debut album “Simulated Reality”. Guest features on the album include Jeffree Lerner of STS9 on percussion and local Atlanta legends, The Terminus Horns. Space Kadet came together to form an always changing, never ending, groovy space odyssey.’
Sean K. Preston Patio Show
Nov 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The Grey Eagle

PATIO SHOW: Sean K. Preston

The music of Sean K. Preston draws heavily on the influences of the classic heartbroken sounds of Country & Western music from the 40’s through the 70’s, the honesty of the Blues by the likes of Robert Johnson and John Lee Hooker, the bombast of 50’s Rock’n’Roll, the lyrical sophistication of musical poets like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Nick Cave, the raw energy of Punk, and the spirituality of Mountain Gospel. His own songs range from delicate laments and lullabies to fiery sermons and confessions.

Tuatha Dea returns to White Horse Black Mountain
Nov 28 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
White Horse Black Mountain

Tuatha Dea returns to White Horse for another beautiful, heart-pounding collection of Appalachian Roots Rock and other magical music. The storied band brings a rock edge and fearless attitude for pushing the boundaries of modern roots music.

Combining primal rhythms, melodic and ethereal ballads, screaming guitar riffs with an Appalachian/Celtic vibe this FAMILY born of a family drum circle delivers an authentic tribal and clannish feel that not only draws the audience into the music but into the moment and clan as well.

In 2017 Tuatha Dea became part of The New Bristol Sessions, a collaboration celebrating the historic 1927 Sessions along with folks like Dolly Parton, Virginia Ground, 49 Winchester and more!
