GEORGE’S ROAD DIARY
Date: 10 NOV 2016
Venue: Streamside Concerts, Asheville NC
A long drive ahead of us down I-81 from our hotel in Staunton, VA. Stopped for breakfast in Natural Bridge VA at the Pink Cadillac Diner for a slice of Americana. Great food and atmosphere, friendly people. Now, I’ve been through western NC before, but never via Tennessee through the Blue Ridge Mountains – some amazing scenery.
Upon our arrival at Streamside, the first thing we noticed was the steep and winding main driveway down to the venue!!! First challenge of the day: getting down there without bottoming-out or unintentionally off-roading. 😉
The grounds and the venue are stunning, such an inspirational performance space! The main room has a vaulted ceiling and large stone fireplace, with large windows providing a beautiful backdrop of the surrounding wooded estate. Markus and Bernhard were in top improvisational form (listen for yourself!) for a warm and receptive crowd. As an added bonus, a few old friends of ours were in attendance!
Many, many thanks to our hosts Sally Sparks and Lora Tannenholz – your hospitality is legendary! 🙂
…and for those wondering: I chickened-out and took the secondary flat driveway out. 😉
