10:00pm at Tressa's Downtown Jazz & Blues
If you are walking around the streets of downtown Asheville and are suddenly stopped in your tracks as your heart is lifted by an a cappella tune that is equal parts earthy and angelic, you are likely listening to the voice of gospel and soul singer Rhoda Weaver.

9:00pm at The Mothlight

Son Little, the singer and songwriter born Aaron Livingston, is the easygoing musical alchemist of our time. He is a conjurer, and much like those of his heroes Stevie Wonder and Jimi Hendrix, his songs are deconstructions of the diaspora of American R & B. Deftly he weaves different eras of the sound - blues, soul, gospel, rock and roll - through his own unique vision, never forced, always smooth, each note a tributary on the flowing river of rhythm and blues. The currents empty into an estuary, and into this well water Son dips his bucket - trusting innately in the magic's existence. And now, with his second full-length album, New Magic, he has delivered a profound statement, a cohesive creation that captures the diverse spirit of American music in a fresh and modern way.
