Friend of the store: Joshua Messick

One of the great pleasures of having a store in Black Mountain is the interesting people we meet. We truly enjoy striking up conversations with y'all. And for repeat customers that we see again and again we can develop a friendship that is rewarding.

One of the great friends of the store is Joshua Messick. He is a talented musician and he can be found playing his hammered dulcimer on the sidewalks in town during the warm weather months. We always enjoy chatting with him when he wanders into the store (which is often) and hearing what he is up to.

Here is a taste of Joshua's music:

Joshua has an upcoming concert at the Altamont in Asheville that I was alerted to by his newsletter. You should check it out if you have the chance. He has a collection of videos on his website if you would like to hear some more samples of his music and you can purchase his CDs as well.
