Description

Please join us for the 2017 Global Beats, Rural Rhythms MusicFest Fundraiser on September 30th! This event helps support Global Rural Health at MAHEC. Why go abroad to help serve our local community? Because "Global health is rural health," says Dr. Benjamin Gilmer, physician at MAHEC Family Health Center at Cane Creek. Physicians, residents, and others participate with the global health brigades to Camasca, Honduras, where they have been serving this impoverished region for over 10 years. There, they find many of the same issues as the community in rural Western North Carolina: transportation, poverty, and education. They bring back the skills needed to work in rural areas of our own community, and your ticket directly helps support these efforts. Come enjoy music, beer, wine, camping, bouncy house, food, silent auction, and more all while supporting Global Rural Health!


Chalwa reggae band is based out of the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina and play a blend of high-energy new school and old school roots reggae. Forming in 2005 Chalwa has released three full-length albums and toured the east coast/Colorado along with Jamaica. Chalwa has supported: The Wailers, Steel Pulse, SOJA (Soldiers of Jah Army), The Meditations, Bambu Station, Midnite, Groundation, Luciano, Pato Banton, and many more. Recent festivals Chalwa has played include: French Broad River Festival, Mountain Sports Festival, Swanfest, Durham World Beer Festival Bele Chere, and The Highlands to Island Reggae Festival.
