From Buncombe County Libraries:

This special evening will be filled with performances by David Holt and Zoe & Cloyd, and MC-d by Fairview’s own Becky and Pat Stone. Memories will be shared, fun stories will be told, and community will be had. This event is free, but tickets are required due to limited seating! While all tickets have been claimed, some are being returned. To inquire about ticket availability, contaact Fairview Library at (828) 250-6484.
Hailing from opposite ends of the Appalachian mountains, Zoe & Cloyd is renowned fiddler and vocalist Natalya Zoe Weinstein and award-winning songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist John Cloyd Miller. Their show is as diverse as their upbringing: coming from a lineage of klezmer and jazz musicians, Natalya trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts before moving south in 2004. John, a twelfth generation North Carolinian and grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler, Jim Shumate, is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest as well as an Artist Fellowship recipient for songwriting from the North Carolina Arts Council.
Four-time Grammy Award winner David Holt is a musician, storyteller, historian, television host and entertainer, dedicated to performing and preserving traditional American music and stories. Holt plays ten acoustic instruments and has released numerous award winning recordings of traditional mountain music and southern folktales.
Holt is well known for his television and radio series. David is currently hosting the PBS series David Holt's State of Music, featuring some of the regions finest musicians including Rhiannon Giddens, Steep Canyon Rangers and Balsam Range. For over 30 years David has been host of the NC PBS series Folkways that takes the viewer through the Southern Mountains visiting traditional craftsmen and musicians. In 2002, Doc Watson and David won two Grammy Awards for Best Traditional Folk Recording for Legacy, a three CD collection of songs and stories reflecting Doc Watson’s inspiring life story.
