Asheville Events

Haw Creek Sweet Hots

We are a multi-generational group of musicians who enjoy gathering together to play and share in the joy of informal fiddle music. We draw our inspiration from a varied range of fiddling styles including but not limited to: Suzuki, Irish, Old-Time, and Texas Swing. We encourage musical families to engage in this activity together and we find that it is not only life enriching but lots of fun to share!  Our band leader is Jennie Brunner, long time member (since birth really) of the Walker Family Band.
It is important to us that we expose our players to traditional styles of fiddle playing and for our students to learn from well trained teachers and musicians. To make this possible, this year, we are inviting specialists in the different genres of fiddle styles to come and work with our group. We also are interested in learning and letting the history of these living art forms be a part of our study and build connectivity between the informal musical traditions of the past to create something magical in the moment that helps inspire a more beautiful and informed future. We are excited to share our music with people in the surrounding Asheville community and we have our sights on taking a tour group to Ireland in a few years on a cultural, musical exchange. Not only will we be actively involved in gigging and busking, but we have an exciting collaboration in the works between our group and the Asheville Family Dance group sponsored by the Old Farmer’s Ball (hopefully more on this in a few weeks).
