CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - On Sunday night, Nan Macmillan, Louis Smith, Orion Faruque or Asher McGlothlin performed some of their favorite songs and answered questions about their work.

The goal of the event was to give performers a chance to discuss their inspirations while allowing audience members a chance to get to know them better.

“I think it really helps people appreciate the work and passion and love that goes into the experience of an artist and helps people to just have a deeper understanding,” said Katen Reynolds, with The Front Porch.

Proceeds from Sunday night's event will benefit the artists involved, as well as the night's sponsor: The Front Porch.
