Music fundraiser celebrates White Horse’s seven years

From staff reports

In 2007, White Horse Black Mountain owners Bob Hinkle and Kim Hughes relocated to Hinkle’s native North Carolina mountains after successful careers in the New York entertainment world. They had a vision of creating a first-class listening room that would present artists in a wide variety of styles and genres in a warm, inviting atmosphere.

Seven years later the White Horse Black Mountain is a destination for top touring and regional acts as well as music lovers, and the venue consistently tops polls as a place to hear great music and as a business that gives back to the community.

White Horse knows something about celebrations as well as struggles. Its seventh-year anniversary celebration Nov. 6 will also serve as a fundraiser to help defray mounting debt and keep White Horse going into its eighth year.

Performing will be B.J. Leiderman, Marcel Anton, David Troy Francis, Bill Bares, Rod Abernethy, Ian Ridenhour, Tracey Schmidt, Barbie Angell, Kim Hughes and Bob Hinkle.
