An April Update 🌷🎶
Hey, y'all! Maggie Rainwater here with HoosierDevil - just reaching out to catch you up on what's happening in my corner of the music world! When I wrote in last, music venues here in North Carolina had just been given the green light to reopen at 30% capacity for the first time since the start of the pandemic. It's been a busy few weeks supporting my artist and event clients with spreading the word about new live music experiences, and I love that things are happening again in a safe way!
In addition to attending some client shows, I had the opportunity to go to a concert I had nothing to do with - just for fun! - for the first time in quite awhile. Last week I saw Oliver Wood from the Wood Brothers in an excellent solo performance at 185 King Street in Brevard. They've been putting on some awesome limited capacity shows, and it was so nice to get out and be among people enjoying music!
I've also got something non-musical to share... my newest web design project went live last weekend. It's something really different and fun - an equestrian facility! Whippoorwill Farm wanted to update their site to something that was more customizable, functional, and streamlined than the GoDaddy site they'd had for several years. I built them a new site on Wix which has all the features they're looking for and more! This is actually just Part 1 of Whippoorwill's upgrade - in Part 2 I'll be setting them up with ecommerce, fillable forms, and online bookings! I love their color scheme and beautiful horse photos and I really enjoyed putting this website together for them. It was also cool to work on a project that's non-musical - though roots music is my primary industry, a professional website is a universal tool 😊 Check out the site at whippoorwillfarm.net. Got a website that isn't working the way you'd like, or want to bring some new ideas to life? Visit the Contact page and let's talk about YOUR site 👩🏻💻

White Horse Black Mountain's reopening has been in the news all over Asheville! We were featured on WLOS' evening news, in the Mountain Xpress' cover story, and in The Laurel magazine - both of which included a photo of our team in front of the new mural that was painted during the pandemic. I also designed the ad that ran alongside our story in The Laurel - and even got to design and hang some event posters for the first time in over a year! I love working with venues to spread the word about their events, and it's even more exciting now that things are rolling again. White Horse Black Mountain has a full list of upcoming concerts and they're now up to 50% capacity (that's approximately 100 real, live humans)!
Whether it's at White Horse or elsewhere in western North Carolina and beyond... I hope to see you at a show very soon! I get my second vaccine dose in a couple weeks and I can't wait to hug all y'all. Until then, stay safe and be well!
