The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus returned to Asheville Friday May 13 and Saturday May 14. Music Allies and Creative Allies sponsored the visit, in partnership with WCQS, Hatch Asheville, The Hop Ice Cream, Tingles Cafe and the Asheville Area ArtsCouncil. The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus is a state-of-the-art mobile audio and HD video studio.
The local band, Double Take, featuring student musicians from Asheville Middle School, Asheville Catholic and Carolina Day spent all day Friday on the bus writing an original song and music video with the guidance of the Tour’s three recording engineers. The students also recorded an interview for later broadcast with reporter Duncan McFadyen in the WCSQ studios.
The Lennon Bus also opened for public tours throughout its stay.
