Upcoming Asheville concerts include Glass Animals, Ben Phan, and more

Local singer-songwriter Ben Phan, who performs under the name Ben Phantom, will have a lot of time to ponder new music in the coming weeks, but he’ll perform once more before going on another long-term adventure.

Phantom has completed two of the longest hikes in the country and is prepped for one more, to close out the “Triple Crown” of long hikes. He plans to begin his thru-hike of the Continental Divide Trail on April 15, going from the border of Mexico, across five states, and completing the trek at the Canadian border.

Phan, who said the hike will take five to six months, will carry a small guitar on his pack, like he did on other long hikes, and has plans to write more music. Fans can catch him one last time before he leaves when he plays at 7 pm March 27 at The Gray Eagle.
