The Opulent 'Possum House Concert Series, an intimate, at-home chance to enjoy some amazing singer/songwriters up close, continues this weekend with a performance by Heather Taylor.
Taylor is creative to her core. Classically trained in flute, the now Asheville resident embraces the gritty soul of Appalachian folk music. Accompanied by her octave mandolin, Taylor draws elements of blues, americana, roots and rock into her songwriting.
Ben and Kelly Lovejoy open their home to a handful of musicians at Far Flung Farm in Canton, and members of the community are invited to bring a pot-luck dish and come enjoy the show. A $20 donation is requested at the end of the show.
The Lovejoys started the Opulent 'Possum Concert Series in 2007 in Columbia, South Carolina, hosting a number of singer-songwriters. Many of these artists joined us multiple times over a 4 1/2-year span during the Columbia version of the Series.
After putting the concert on hold, the series kicked off once again in 2016 at their new home in the WNC mountains of Canton.
The Lovejoys ask anyone interested in the event to please RSVP with them before the event and let them know how many you have coming.
Guests are asked to arrive between 6-6:30 p.m., and bring a potluck dish to share with four to six people. Iced tea and water will be available.
The first set will begin promptly at 7 p.m. All proceeds go to the Heather Taylor. There are two sets of music, and they'll also have music and merchandise for sale between sets.
