RiverMusic

riverMUSIC_large

RiverMusic — five Friday nights of free (!) live concerts by the French Broad River in the River Arts District of Asheville — returns for a fourth year in 2015. RiverLink has teamed up with Heira Productions to assemble a top-notch mix of quality national acts and local favorites at the RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza in the River Arts District (map).

At this point, we don’t know our acts, but we do know dates. We’re going on a pretty regular schedule next year for RiverMusic and RiverFest.  RiverMusic will be the second Friday of each month except August — May 8, June 12, July 10, September 11 and October 9.  RiverFest, featuring the fabulous Anything-That-Floats Parade, will be on the second Saturday of August — August 8.

Gates for all events open at 5:00 p.m. and the party goes until 10. There will be beer from local craft brewers, food trucks, live music from local and national acts, and the waters of the beautiful French Broad flowing right by the stage.

Read what Joe Safsy, music critic and long-time contributor to The Washington Post, has to say about the RiverMusic 2014 lineup.
