Carole King’s “Tapestry” album, recorded and released in 1971, is one of the best selling albums of all time. It received four Grammy Awards in 1972 and has been an inspiration to millions of musicians, including Asheville local Jesse Barry. On October 7th, Jesse will sing “Tapestry” in its entirety, along with a full set of hit songs you may not know were also written by Carole King. With an all-star lineup of musicians including Peggy Ratusz, Brie Capone, Kelly Jones, Aaron Price, Zack Page, Micah Thomas, Dean Mitchell, & Kate Kinney Barber, this is bound to be another night to remember!
