Recording Artist Sirena Hawk Squires (left) brings her Ancestral Native Flute Music to Organicfest again this year. With 20 years of experience playing these flutes, she packs a powerful punch with her atypical style. Collaborating with Tina Powell (right) on the Frame Drum, her energized, warrior type sound, along with some sweet melodies too, are what we can expect to hear from her at Organicfest...and we’ll be glad we didn’t miss it!

Organicfest 2013 Entertainment

Organicfest Entertainment line up

Jen Wo and Zuzu Welsh started out on their musical adventure about a year and a half ago, one hot Sunday afternoon, just sharin’ mostly original tunes in Jen’s living room. That led to the creation of a three piece band called the Zoodles. Both Zuzu and Jan have been immersed in music since the womb and have a deep passion for spreading positivity, fun and love through their expression. Although the Zoodles have retired, they are both happy to have the chance to share in love and music again at the 2013 Organicfest.

New to the Asheville scene, Asher Leigh began her musical journey after moving to North Carolina in 2009.  Upon following a whim to pick up the guitar, her first attempt at playing an instrument, she unintentionally stumbled onto a sleeping giant of creative passion -- which urged her immediately to begin writing original material and performing locally.  With plenty of support from the artistic community in Asheville she is now rolling forward to begin recording her first studio album.  Asher’s music will most likely remind you of the flavors your favorite folk, soft rock, and contemporary songs inspire, combining to create the taste of your most meaningful memories lingering in your ears.  Asher’s greatest musical influences include Jason Mraz, Brandi Carlile, Brett Dennen, Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, and the Beatles.”
