LIFESTYLES: Run For The Shindig On The Green

By D. Lanier Shook                 May 21, 2013

Several years ago I took a class at AB Tech in Appalachian Culture. I learned alot about the area we live in, including the role that Bascom Lamar Lunsford played in the promotion and preservation of our mountain music heritage. He believed our music and culture were far more than just fodder for stereotypes.

Even though he went to his reward decades ago his legacy lives on in several events including the Mountain Dance Festival — in its 86th year— and Shindig on the Green— in its 47th season. I’m going to encourage you to click here and check both events schedules. But today I want to tell you about the 5K they’ll be hosting in exactly one month.

On June 22d folks will gather at Carrier Park in West Asheville for the Run for The Shindig on The Green. This will be a 5K and Fun Run/Walk. Click here to read the brochure and print out an entry form.
