WCQS Fundraiser at The Hop on Merrimon - Tonight!

The Hop Ice Cream Cafe on Merrimon Avenue in Asheville will host a family friendly fundraiser for WCQS tonight from 6 to 9. 50% of proceeds from the sale of ice cream will benefit the programs you love on WCQS. The evening will also feature a concert with renowned master dulcimer player and host of Close to Home, Don Pedi.

Pedi has recorded numerous albums, and has been recruited to play in such movie productions as The Journey of August King and Songcatcher. He represented Appalachia at the 2003 Smithsonian Folk Festival, and he is the recipient of both the Bascom Lamar Lunsford Award and the Most Outstanding Performer Award at the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival in Asheville. Tonight he performs live, just for WCQS fans at The Hop Ice Cream Cafe.

So come on out for great ice cream, great music and some good fun tonight from 6 to 9 at The Hop Ice Cream Cafe on Merrimon Avenue.
