HART Haywood Arts Regional Theatre

 Welcome to one of the treasures of Western North Carolina. The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre, founded in 1985, is a volunteer-based community theatre showcasing the talents of the people of the region. HART, under the leadership of Executive Director Steven Lloyd, has grown into one of the most active theatres in the Southeast, producing a year-round schedule of plays and musicals from its home, The Performing Arts Center at the Shelton House. Opened in 1997, and funded by the support of people throughout the community, HART’s home is a stunning facility constructed in the style of the traditional Summer Stock playhouses of the 1920’s. Architect Joe Sam Queen and builder Pat Burgin used native materials to create a facility that is both grand and informal.   Click here for seasonal shows Haywood Arts Regional Theater

FREE PLANET RADIO – World Music Today

Since 2001, Free Planet Radio has been bringing its exciting and innovative world-jazz-classical music blend to both concert stages and classrooms. Based in Asheville NC, this musical partnership began with a clear mission statement as “the shared vision of three multi-instrumentalists exploring the infinite and seamless relationships between musical cultures through the universal language of sound.”


Featured Artist: DAVID LA MOTTE

LaMotte’s first album in a decade offers twelve new songs played by three dozen musicians from six continents. A fusion of cultural influences, from blues to bluegrass and from Latin to African, are mixed together by LaMotte and his two co-producers, Chris Rosser and Tom Prasada-Rao, to create an aural travelogue that mirrors LaMotte’s own geographical journey in the last ten years. The songs are also informed by his personal journey—becoming a father, living and working around the world, and exploring his own capacity for positive impact in questions of justice and peace.
