As part of World Cafe's Sense Of Place trip to Asheville, N.C., we sat down with Alli Marshall, an editor and writer at local weekly paper Mountain Xpressand the author of the novel How To Talk To Rockstars, to hear what makes her city unique. She says Asheville residents approach music, crafts, arts, architecture and even beer with a reverent desire to keep the city their own.

Marshall also talks about a number of local bands she loves, many of whom you can hear in this segment — or in the Spotify playlist below.
