This weekend: Local music stars come together with a purpose at Diana Wortham Theatre in Asheville NC

May 5, 2018 - This Saturday at The Diana Wortham Theatre, 2 Pack Square, Asheville NC
Please join this very special evening for a very special cause: supporting DWT children's programming through the theatre's Youth Education Scholarship (Y.E.S.) Fund.
Singer-songwriter Jane Kramer is joined by local favorites Free Planet Radio and Billy Cardine, Saturday, May 5 at 8:00 p.m.
Adding raw and inspiring talent to the program are the winners of the 2018 Y.E.S. Emerging Artists Fund scholarship: Nikki Forbes (vocal and songwriting), Daniel Logan (vocal), Mars Mignon (theatre), and Logan Williams (vocal). These talented high school seniors won $1,250 each to support their pursuit of the performing arts after graduation.

Tune in and Listen:
Jane Kramer, with Free Planet Radio and Billy Cardine, will be featured live in Studio B on WNCW 88.7FM, Thursday, May 3 at 12:00 p.m.

Jane's is backed by musicians that she plays with frequently and with whom she recorded her newest album, just last week: all three members of Asheville's Free Planet Radio, who are two-time Grammy winner Eliot Wadopian on bass, River Guerguerian on percussion, and Chris Rosser on guitar and piano; and special guest, virtuoso dobro player, Billy Cardine.
