Cllick here for THIS WEEKS SHOWS!
Why we exist
Asheville has a vibrant music community, but reading through dozens of venue websites can be tedious and time consuming. With so many shows happening each week, it can be easy to miss one of your favorite bands. Asheville Music Guide (AMG) is an independent, locally developed online resource that aims to help fans of live music stay up to date with shows happening at all of the venues in Asheville.
Being avid concert goers, musicians, and Asheville residents, we realized the need for something to keep track of upcoming concerts in the area, and then decided to build it. From intimate acoustic sets to dirty rock ‘n roll bands to nationally-known headlining artists, AMG is the home for all things Asheville Music. But, we’re more than just your run of the mill online event calendar. We recognize that you have certain preferences and your own eclectic music taste. Build and save a personalized schedule of your can’t-miss shows, favorite musicians, and go to venues. There’s an everest of music out there, let us be your guide.
This is what we tell volunteers when they are working on the Blue Ridge Parkway:

Angry old white men sittin’ on the bench.
Angry old white men clingin’ to your power
But the karma’s gonna come on down.
Lies are lies, not alternative facts.
Lies are lies, and the truth’ll come out.
Lies are lies, you better clean up your act
Cause the karma’s gonna come on down
The karma’s gonna come on down.
The karma’s gonna come on down real soon.
Do unto others what you want done to you,
Cause the karma’s gonna come on down. Oh, yeah.

Jean describes her poetry as “a choreography of words” as she joins her poetry with musical accompaniment. Her poetry book includes a CD of the poems accompanied by oboe, english horn, flute, piano, fretless banjo, violin, and balafon in the final product that is a beautiful collaboration with regional musicians and readers. Jean’s work has previously been published in the Great Smokies Review, the Online Publication of the Great Smokies Writing Program in Asheville, North Carolina.
