Whispers of Fall in the Blue Ridge; An Evening of Words & Music

Naturalist, writer and poet, Brent Martin, brings to life the travels of 18th century naturalist William Bartram through upcountry South Carolina and beyond as the Blue Ridge prepares for fall. Martin and his wife, musician Angela Faye Martin, run Alarka Expeditions, a nature, literary, and art-based venture offering workshops and field trips on foot and by water. A recipient of the Southern Environmental Law Center’s Southern Environmental Leadership Award, Brent has a long history of environmental service with groups including The Wilderness Society, Georgia Forestwatch and the Land Trust for the Little Tennessee. Off the trail, he writes poetry and essays. His most recent work, a collection of essays on natural history and change in the southern Appalachians, The Changing Blue Ridge Mountains: Essays on Journeys Past and Present was released by Arcadia Publishing in June. Singer-songwriter, artist and naturalist, Angela Faye Martin, also draws on an extensive history of environmental service. She has written and produced three albums and authored and narrated the documentary, The Sad and Beautiful World of Sparklehorse, tracing influential Indie band led by the late Mark Linkous. www.alarkaexpeditions.com Menu Starters: Choice of quinoa, sundried tomato, onion and garlic stuffed portabella mushroom; cauliflower lima bean soup.
