Who doesn’t love to support our local farmers and local food sources? Grab your friends, round up the kids and head out for a Do Good Date Night at Hickory Nut Gap Farm in Fairview on July 19th for loads of fun, mouthwatering farm to table grub, and live local music by Jesse Barry and The Jam.
Who is Jesse Barry and why should you see her?
Beginning at the very, young age of 8 years old, Jesse began gracing Asheville, her home town, with her whimsical presence on local stages, astounding audiences with her tremendous voice at such a young age. Fast forward to 2019, her accomplishments are far and wide which include placing in the Mountain Xpress “Best Of” blues band category three years in a row, and has performed at B.B. King’s Club for the ‘International Blues Challenge’ and at the ‘Springing the Blues Festival’ in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.
Jesse also competed on the popular TV show “American Idol” in season 9 and has made a lasting impression on Asheville and the surrounding areas. After recording three albums with another local band ‘Skinny Legs and All,’ Jesse is also currently working with her blues, funk, and soul group ‘Jesse Barry and The Jam.’ Her other special events include ‘A Social Function’ and her new Steely Dan tribute band ‘Dirty Logic’.
About the Food at Hickory Nut Gap Farm!
