Cookers will also arrive as early as Thursday to be set up and ready by Friday morning for meat inspections. Depending on what each team is cooking and what competitions they plan to enter, they may fire up their smokers shortly thereafter.

Acoustic Syndicate coming to Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival Newgrass folk-rock pioneers Acoustic Syndicate are celebrating their 20th anniversary this summer, and one of their tour stops will be the Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival. On Friday, June 8, they’ll take the stage around 9 p.m. and treat their fans to songs spanning the band’s two-decade-long career. The familiar vocal harmonies of Steve “Big Daddy” McMurry (guitar/mandolin/vocals), Bryon McMurry (acoustic banjo/electric banjo/six string banjo/vocals) and Fitz McMurry (drums/ congas/percussion), alongside Jay Sanders (acoustic bass/ electric bass) and Billy Cardine (dobro/electric resophonic guitar) will evoke memories for many people.

BBQ Festival Entertainment Chairman Benton Wharton said, “It rare for us to book a band two years in a row, but the Syndicate was a real crowd pleaser last year. So, they’re coming back, and we are excited about being part of their big celebration tour this year.” The McMurry family comes from Shelby, N.C. and claims that their ancestors for 200 years have called that area of North Carolina home. The other two members of the group are current residents of the Asheville area, so they really are “homefolks” to the Blue Ridge BBQ & Music crowd. McMurry talked about his feelings about his music and for his fans in Western North Carolina.

“I’ve always hoped that our music leaves people feeling a little better after hearing it or seeing us play live, and the folks in Western North Carolina seem to affirm this,” he said. “It’s one of the main reasons I still play.” Wharton said the southern rock band Sol Driven Train will also be onstage Friday; and Saturday’s headliners include the Lee Boys and The Dynamites, featuring Charles Walker and The Black Lillies. The 19th Annual Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival will be held Friday and Saturday, June 8 and 9, at Harmon Field in Tryon. There will be music on two stages both days, carnival rides and games, a craft fair and championship barbecue

and all the trimmings. For a full schedule of events, visit www. Wharton said the festival has long been one of the best entertainment values anywhere. “Not only do we have a great lineup of talent this year,” he said, “but we’re waiving the admission fee from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Friday. So folks can come in for free and stay as long as they like. They’ll get to hear the afternoon music as well as our evening headliners.” Gates open at 11 a.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. on Saturday, closing at 11 p.m. both days. The event is produced by the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce. - article submitted by Brenda Bradshaw

Green Creek resident honored by University of Alabama Mark Levin, former Carolina Day School (Asheville) fifth-grade teacher and current director of communications at Carolina Day School, was honored on Thursday, May 10 by the University of Alabama and the Alabama Scholastic Press Association for “his lifetime of service to scholastic journalism and for his exemplary leadership in founding the National Elementary Schools Press Association.” Formed in 1994 by Mr. Levin at Carolina Day School, the National Elementary Schools Press Association (NESPA) works with elementary and middle schools across the country to start class and school newspapers and improve existing ones. According to Levin, the organization has more than 760 member schools nationwide. Levin has run the association single-handedly for the past 17 years. Claudia Sherry, lower school principal at Carolina Day, said she remembers when Mr. Levin “came

to me 19 years ago with the idea of starting ‘Carolina Kids’ News’ so that his fifth-grade students could write for a real audience. Then shortly after he got into the newspaper business, he came to me again to say that there was no organization in existence to support elementary school newspapers so he thought he should start one. NESPA was born shortly thereafter.” Levin was recently in Tuscaloosa, Ala. to hand off the reins of NESPA to Meredith Cummings, director of the Alabama Scholastic Press Association in the University of Alabama journalism department. Levin will continue to serve as an adviser. In addition to founding “Carolina Kids’ News” and NESPA, Levin is the author of four books dealing with publishing. “The Reporter’s Notebook,” his most utilized book, has been used by more than 30,000 student journalists across the world. Other books

Organizers of the “Spring Soiree� benefit held recently for Tryon Youth Center said the event was a huge success, raising almost $25,000 to be used for maintenance and repairs on the building. Approximately 140 people attended the event, which was sponsored by the Foothills Duplicate Bridge Club. Guests enjoyed an Italian-themed meal prepared by chef and bridge player Marily Williams of La Bella Tavola catering company. John Memory, guitarist and whistler, entertained guests while they viewed the many silent and live auction items. After dinner, many danced the night away to music provided by the Sue Wilson Band. “The soiree was a great success due to the many efforts and contributions of Foothills Duplicate Bridge Club members,� said event chairman Sherril Wingo. All proceeds benefit the Tryon Youth Center, the bridge club’s “home,� where Sally Jo Carter teaches and duplicate bridge is played two or three days a week. (photo submitted by Barbara Clegg)
