An Opportunity for Input on Occupancy Tax Revenue

The Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority (TDA) is seeking input from residents. Did you know that overnight visitors to Asheville and Buncombe County pay a lodging tax that helps to fund grants to community projects like parks, theaters, museums, sports facilities, historic sites, and greenways?

The Tourism Product Development Fund, administered by the TDA and funded through occupancy tax revenue, has awarded $44 million to 39 projects, including the Enka Sports Park Complex, Pack Square Park, WNC Nature Center, the Woodfin Greenway & Blueway, and the River Arts District.

To insure that residents have a voice in prioritizing the needs and opportunities for using these funds in the future (within the mandates set forth by the NC General Assembly), a collaborative process called the Buncombe County Tourism Management & Investment Plan (TMIP) is now underway. This is where you come in, with two opportunities to provide your input.

Zoe & Cloyd Performing at Weaverville’s Main Street Nature Park August 10 at 6pm

The Town of Weaverville is pleased to host the August 10 concert of the 2nd Saturday Summer Series featuring Zoe & Cloyd! Join us in the Main Street Nature Park to relax and enjoy talented musicians. Bring a chair or blanket and picnic while listening to traditional tunes! Contact Town Hall at (828) 645-7116 for additional information or with questions.

About Zoe & Cloyd:
Hailing from opposite ends of the Appalachian mountains, Zoe & Cloyd is renowned fiddler and vocalist Natalya Zoe Weinstein and award-winning songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist John Cloyd Miller. Their show is as diverse as their upbringing: coming from a lineage of klezmer and jazz musicians, Natalya trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts before moving south in 2004. John, a twelfth generation North Carolinian and grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler, Jim Shumate, is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest as well as an Artist Fellowship recipient for songwriting from the North Carolina Arts Council.

As founding members of the acclaimed Americana trio, Red June, and long-time fixtures of the Asheville, NC music scene, the couple shifted focus to Zoe & Cloyd in 2015. Their debut recording, Equinox, as well as their 2017 album, Eyes Brand New, both met with high praise and the pair have continued to gain momentum with their brand of “New Appalachian Music” at performances and festivals all across the country. Zoe & Cloyd delight audiences of all ages with soaring harmonies and heartfelt songwriting, seamlessly combining original folk, country, old-time and bluegrass with sincerity and zeal. Their eagerly anticipated third studio album, produced by Jon Weisberger, will be released on Organic Records in September 2019.
