Equanimous is a music producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist. He gathers elements from the world around him to create a sound that defies genres, pushes boundaries, and can only accurately be described as a one of a kind heart-expansive experience. His music resonates with a variety of listeners and creates a joyous high vibrational atmosphere on the dance floor. Equanimous up-levels the electronic music experience by playing live djembe / drums, keys, and beatboxing along with his tracks. He's known for his deep bass, beautiful melodies, live looping, and creative rhythmic beats that take people into a state of euphoric dancing and heart-centered bliss.

Ruby Chase serves up a unique ritualistic approach to live performance, weaving a broad span of musical flavors ranging from bass to latin, downtempo to house. Blending this range of global dance tracks with her original music, ethereal live vocals and interactive invitations, Ruby’s sets turn the dance floor into a ceremony.


The Hawk & Hawthorne is a practicing permaculture community & venue nestled just north of Asheville, NC.

Set in a freshly renovated heritage tobacco barn amidst an expansive valley full of fruit trees, homestead gardens, spring fed ponds & majestic views. The Hawk has been an organic gathering point for the Asheville & Barnardsville community for over 30 years, hosting hundreds of weddings, workshops & intimate live performances.

The community here is emerging in response to the challenges of our times -- drawing strength from folk traditions and each other to create containers for the emergent human renaissance to celebrate & grow. Through cooperation, music, crafting & regenerative agriculture practices, we are rediscovering our sense of belonging; to the land & each other.

--> We are a non-alcoholic venue. Buchi Kombucha, Kefir Soda & Homemade Elixirs from our garden will be available at the bar. (Cash preferred; venmo/cards OK.)

Camping at the Hawk included access to drinking springs, forest trails as well as bathrooms, power, a hot shower, wifi and a sweet covered living room space in the barn to hang out.  We also have two bell tents with included air mattresses.  Please email us at hawkandhawthorne@gmail.com if you are interested in booking these.
