This is great news! Music on the Mountaintop in Boone, NC raised $5000 for Appalachian Voices this year. Frank Ruggiero with the Mountain Times reports:

Organizers of Boone’s annual Music on the Mountaintop agree this year’s festival was a rousing success.

With attendance between 5,000 and 6,000, it was what founder Jimmy Hunt called “good, successful and exciting.”

Area environmental advocacy group Appalachian Voices would agree, to the tune of $5,500.
With community outreach a key facet of the festival, Hunt has ensured that portions of proceeds benefit a different nonprofit organization each year. This year, Appalachian Voices stood to benefit with a 10 percent increase in donation from last year.

“Even with the economy down, there are still positive events trying to get us back,” Hunt said. “It makes sense. If people can have a good time and dance and, at the end of the day, realize their ticket made a difference, that’s pretty awesome.” . . . .

. . . “But what really blew my mind was the amount of positive response we got from the artists – Larry Keel, Toubab Krewe, Railroad Earth, even Keller (Williams),” he said. “They all tried to come find me, not just to say ‘thank you,’ but a very personal, sincere ‘thank you.’ Toubab has been all over the world and said this was such a breath of fresh air, coming back and playing in front of people who genuinely like music.

“That’s a testament to our town and fans, what Music on the Mountaintop is, and that it’s, hopefully, always going to be here.”

Week of Ticket Special:
$25 general Admission; $20 Student

This Thursday and Friday, July 1 & 2, Asheville Skyline presents Playing It Forward 2010, featuring headliners Acoustic Syndicate and Col. Bruce Hampton. Music starts at 8:00 pm each evening at the Diana Wortham Theatre.

July 1st is a “jam” packed evening of music with Big Daddy Love and Velvet Truckstop setting the stage for the man some would call the “Godfather” of the southern jam sound Col. Bruce Hampton and his “Quark Alliance. While he earned his throne amongst the rockin’ royalty by the jam, with Quark Alliance he shows that he refuses to rest on his musical laurels.Perfectly illustrating one of the ideals of “Playin’ It Forward” Hampton has redefined his style touring with his bandmates Duane Trucks, Kris Dale and Perry Osborne. Bringing on tour a fusion of blues and jazz, that is uniquely Quark. The Asheville Skyline Band will then take the stage in full force “Playin’ it Forward” style. The core group of Jeff Sipe, Ike Stubblefield, Jay Sanders,  and Shane Pruitt, alone bring serious expertise to any stage, together they give an almost utopian environment for a group of lesser known (for now) talents who are bending peoples ears. The latest update of players includes : Janell Funk, Dan Smith, Dorsey Parker, Jamie Dose, Bo Henry, Brandon Fox, Tony Kennedy, Craig Sorrells, and more!

Closing out Playing It Forward 2010 on Friday, July 2 is the solid sound of Acoustic Syndicate. Formed in 1992, Acoustic Syndicate has had a long and storied career having spent well over a dozen years on the road, playing at the original Bonnaroo, MerleFest, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Memphis in May and in many other clubs, festivals and events. Known for its high-energy, positive sound, the band delivers a genre-defying performance, masterfully blending its eclectic influences with trademark finesse that only 17 years of cohesive teamwork can bring.

Opening for Acoustic Syndicate July 2nd are the Asheville-based The Honeycutters, Ash Grass Revival (Jason Flournoy, John Stickley and Billy Gilmore), and singer/songwriter Chris O’Neill. Other special guests TBA!
