$12 to $20
Launched in August of 2020, Tuesday Casual Collaborations at 185 King Street has become a cornerstone of the vibrant Brevard music community. Every week Travis Book assembles a unique group of musicians for a one-time-only show, drawing on his vast network of friends and growing repertoire of musical styles. From Bluegrass to Blues, Songwriter to Americana, Country to Funk, Travis and his ever-evolving cast of local and national (even international) musicians consistently hit the sweet spot between preparation and spontaneity. “Eventually, I hope to play with everyone!” he occasionally boasts, and he’s well on his way. Travis has hosted a wide range of musicians, including: Anders Beck, Nicki Bluhm, Josh Daniel, Beppe Gambetta, Mike Guggino, Vince Herman, Sierra Hull, Cris Jacobs, Jim Lauderdale, Lindsay Lou, Steve McMurry, Mimi Naja, Tim O’Brien, Woody Platt, Jon Stickley, Kyle Tuttle, and Cristina Vane. He also regularly employs the skills of world-class local musicians like Jeff Sipe, Mike Ashworth, Tommy Maher, Bennett Sullivan, and Derick Gardner. Every week is unique, the musical styles wide-ranging, but the one thing that remains constant is the intention, positivity, and charisma that Travis brings to each and every show.

Travis is on tour throughout January so he is handing his hosting duties off to some trusted friends.  Jon Weisberger will be hosting this evening and will be joined by his friends Gena Britt (of Sister Sadie), banjo; Nick Dauphinais, guitar; Cynthia McDermott, mandolin; and James Schlender (of Songs From The Road Band), fiddle.  

A resident of Brevard since 2019, Jon spent more than 20 years as a touring bass player before settling in Western North Carolina. The recipient of the IBMA’s first Songwriter of the Year award, his co-writes have appeared on recent Grammy-winning bluegrass albums by Billy Strings, the Infamous Stringdusters, the Travelin’ McCourys and Mark O’Connor.  In the studio, he has worked as a producer with Aaron Burdett, Anya Hinkle, Zoe & Cloyd, Tray Wellington, Carley Arrowood, Fireside Collective and other Mountain Home and Organic Records artists.
