Join us at the Laughing Waters Retreat on top of the scenic Hickory Nut Gorge on Saturday April 6th, 7:30pm with World- super group Free Planet Radio. With outstanding grooves blended with a jazz-fusion flare and sonically all things good, Free Planet Radio will reveal their quantum talents in an intimate and beautiful mountain setting. This ensemble is composed of River Guerguerian, Armenian-Egyptian born in Canada, an award-winning multi-percussionist / composer whose lyrical percussion style earned him a long-standing tenure with Turkish flutist virtuoso Omar Faruk Tekbilek; Eliot Wadopian, a two-time Grammy-award winner, proficient on string and electric basses, a 17 year member of the Paul Winter Consort. He's also worked with Hal Galper, Glen Velez, and Eugene Friesen; Chris Rosser, an accomplished pianist, composer / producer, renown for his outstanding performances on a variety of indigenous stringed instruments. He studied under the master Ali Akbar Khan.
Laughing Waters Retreat is the community center for Hickory Nut Forest, an eco-community on 240 acres in beautiful Hickory Nut Gorge. It is equidistant from Asheville (17 miles), Hendersonville, and Black Mountain, NC. Sitting by the tumbling Hickory Nut Creek, this nurturing place provides a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. Laughing Waters offers this energizing surrounding for experiencing workshops, events and programs that promote self-transformation, catalyze social regeneration, and stimulate environmental awareness.
