Get Lost for a Cause with Hospitality House: Live Music featuring Melissa Reaves at 7pm

Lost Province will be donating 10% of sales from the day to Hospitality House so come dine with us and support this wonderful cause.

Hospitality House, a regional nonprofit agency and transitional living facility serves seven North Carolina counties (Watauga, Wilkes, Ashe, Avery, Alleghany, Mitchell, Yancey) helping people in crisis, poverty and homelessness rebuild their lives. Since 1984, the mission of Hospitality House has been to rebuild lives and strengthen community by providing a safe, nurturing, healthy environment in which individuals and families experiencing homelessness and poverty-related crises are equipped to become self-sufficient and productive. In 2015, Hospitality House provided close to 36,000 nights of shelter and served over 147,500 meals (average of 12,000 per month) out of the Community Kitchen and Food Pantry. The founding principle – No one should ever go hungry – drives our hunger relief efforts. In 2011, the Gardens at Hospitality House were created to increase access to fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit and so began a new core tenet to our mission – Everyone deserves access to healthy, organically grown food.

7:30pm-10:30pm Live Music: Momma Molasses. Momma Molasses is a musical project created by N.C. based songwriter Ella Patrick. Originally from the Piedmont/Sandhills North Carolina, Ella grew up singing gospel songs in church and was inspired by her ballader Uncle to pick up the guitar. Self-proclaimed “weird kid” and “general questioner of reality” her music naturally draws on a wide range of ideas, combining Alt-Country, blues, honky-folksy whatever into a sweet dripping, slow moving sound. Quirky, and effortlessly idiosyncratic, her performances are noted for rambunctious asides and gleeful (though not always graceful) energy. Armed with little more than intuition and a guitar, Momma Molasses is ready to play for just about anybody willing to listen!

Friday September 16

7:30pm-Closing Live Music: Redleg Husky. Redleg Husky is an acoustic roots trio based in Asheville, North Carolina. Since its inception in 2012, the band has been performing its unique blend of boot-stomping folk music at barrooms, theaters, and festivals throughout the Southeast and beyond. The group has released two recordings in that time, its self-titled 2013 EP, and its full-length debut,Carolina, recorded at Wild Chorus Studios in Knoxville, TN by Scott Minor and released in 2014.

Saturday September 17

8:30pm-Closing Live Music: Tin Can Alley. Classic soul and R&B from the 1960’s brought to you by Tin Can Alley. Tin Can Alley was formed in 2006 as a way to deliver the lyrical power and driving rhythms of the classic soul, R&B, and rock of the 60’s to smaller venues. By toning down percussion, using a dog house bass, and focusing on the wonderful vocal harmonies found in the songs released by Motown, Stax-Volt, and Atco-Atlantic, the Cans have developed a loyal following throughout Piedmont and Western NC. Recently this multi-talented trio has added more percussion for larger venues and continues to perform the music of Marvin Gaye, James Brown, The Beatles, The Coasters, and The Drifters as well as more contemporary artists Steve Winwood, Delbert McClinton, and Steely Dan at festivals, clubs, restaurants, breweries, and wineries in the region.

Sunday September 18

Lost Province Sunday: Residents of “The Lost Province” (Watauga, Ashe, Avery and Alleghany) receive 10% off food with verification of residency.
