Support Grove Appalachia who brings you Asheville Street Music
Jon Walsh was one of the first traveling street musicians I met when taking on the Asheville Street Music in 2012. Jon came down to Asheville, NC with a bicycle, an acoustic guitar, some clothes and a vision. Jon came to Asheville because of the reputation of artistic talent and culture of Appalachia. Most every song you hear from Jon, he has written and his music is natural to our area. A country/folk style and a voice that will take Jon to front stage wherever he goes.
Jon has since taken to the road and has some great new videos he has created of his new songs. If you get a chance to see Jon, his music will definitely be worth your time.
