    Joshua Messick will be performing at White Horse Black Mountain, located at 105 Montreat Rd, Black Mountain, NC 28711, on July 25, 8pm. Doors will open at 7:30pm. Joshua Messick, a local resident, is a National Hammered Dulcimer Champion and has established himself as one of the nation’s leading hammered dulcimer artists. Creativity flows with dynamic passion as he weaves progressive, cinematic stylings & modern techniques into traditional melodies, original compositions, & powerful improvisations. Joshua relates, “When I play, I seek to convey human emotions that connect all people: love, sorrow, joy, gratitude--all gifts found in the chambers of every human heart. I know that music, especially as it resounds from the ancient hammered dulcimer, reflects the invisible human spirit. This music is a prayer without words and a balm to communicate love, hope, and healing.” White Horse Black Mountain owners Bob Hinkle and Kim Hughes state, “Artists like Joshua Messick are one of the reasons that we opened White Horse. Don’t miss this.” This will be the first concert that Joshua will perform with his new acoustic instrumental band “Acoustic Storm”. Musicians include local icons River Guerguerian on world percussion and James Kylen on vibraphone/percussion. The concert will also introduce Houston-based cellist Max Dyer. Max played cello with the prestigious Houston Symphony, tours internationally, and continues to record on hundreds of albums. Joshua Messick fans appreciate Max’s cello on “Hammered Dulcimer Christmas”. Tickets are $18 advance or $20 door and may be purchased at www.whitehorseblackmountain.com or by calling (828) 669-0816.

Joshua Messick





““Joshua Messick is one of a handful of new, young virtuoso hammered dulcimer players emerging from around the country. He is a National Hammered Dulcimer Champion and continues to grow and mature as an exceptional talent. His skill on the instrument doesn’t begin and end with his technical proficiency. He has an amazing sense for composition and has written, and continues to write, beautiful passages that specifically highlight the unique qualities and strengths of the hammered dulcimer. Joshua is a player who understands the power of the space between the notes and has the ability to transform a solo piece into a symphonic experience.””

— Jerry Ready Smith, Master Hammered Dulcimer Luthier
