A Streamside Evening of Music & Feast with The Billy Sea
featuring percussionist Ben Mawhorter and Vocalist Mary Lucey

Mark Rosenstein’s IRON CIRCUS

Fusion Menu Inspired by Bengali Cooking Presented in Three Movements

We are so very excited to present something new at Streamside, a fusion of music and feast featuring some of WNC’s best in music and food! If you’ve been coming to concerts at Streamside, you’re probably familiar with our potlucks that precede the concerts. Folks bring some great dishes and they are lots of fun. This time, you can leave your dishes at home and save your appetites for the culinary artistry of Asheville’s godfather of chefs, Mark Rosenstein (founder of the Market Place restaurant), who is teaming up with The Billy Sea and special guests to present an evening inspired by the ragas of India and the food of the Bengali. Guests will arrive to:

BENGALI FUSION IN THREE MOVEMENTS

“Prelude of Edibles” – plates of small bites – dal with shrimp, minted puree of fresh pea, ginger and coconut dal, rice cakes with chutney, almond milk & lemon soup, followed by the

“Jam Session”: Mountain Trout Three Ways, Seared Kebobs “Infernillio”, Tender Vegetables in Spicy Steam, and finishing with

“Whimsies”: Rasgulla – Dumplings of Cottage Cheese served with fresh and dried fruits.

And then, in concert, continuing with the theme:

THE BILLY SEA

Slide guitarist Billy Cardine with Asheville treasures River Guerguerian and Jake Wolf, along with special guests percussionist Ben Mawhorter (Tabla, Mringdam and Ghatam) and Vocalist Mary Lucey to bring us Indian raga inspired fusion as well as “Global Americana” music to carry the theme.
