Images From The Studio B Session With YELLOW FEATHER

We had a great time taking these images in Studio B while hanging with the band Yellow Feather. The group calls Old Fort, North Carolina home. It's a small town located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just eat of Asheville, NC. We were fortunate to share this LIVE Studio B Session with our listeners earlier this year. And, we've also been able to feature one of the Country/Americana band's songs, "Lucille" on our new Crowd Around The Mic CD Volume 22.

The Charleston-based band The Artisanals' self-titled debut album blends 70s rock, alt-Americana-and great songwriting, and they played songs from it live for us when they were in Studio B last month. We'll re-visit that session this week on Studio B Rewind and we'll also check out a session with Banjo Nickaru and Western Scooches, an outfit that's as delightfully quirky as they sound. Join Kim Clark every Sunday evening at 7pm for Studio B Rewind.

North Carolina Documentary Filmmaker Anna Jones is receiving high acclaim, honors, and screenings across the nation and beyond for a film she made about her father, "Chairman Jones: An Improbable Leader."  Her inspiring story tells the story of James Jones, a black farmer in Eastern N.C. with only a 7th grade education, who incredibly became the first black school board chairman in the state around 1970.  Anna is interviewed on this Friday Feature that first aired on October 12, 2018.

Our Fall Fundraiser starts this Sunday, October 21st, at 7am! We are super excited to meet up with old friends, fans, and WNCW Members, in Studio B this weekend. We have LOTS of new thank you gifts - cool stuff like our new Crowd Around The Mic Vol. 22. There's info on this homepage about the artists featured on the two-cd compilation. Just click on the slideshow to view liner notes! We are also offering a new handmade coffee mug, new tee-shirt designs, a new hoodie, a WNCW Nalgene Bottle, fishing trips, concert tickets, cds, gift certificates and much more!
