Time goes on, life moves forward, roots grow, leaves sprout and branches grow up and out reaching for new heights... new places.  That's what The Tall Grass is all about... roots music that grows and morphs into many different kinds of sound and song. This week Joe Greene brings us music from Claire Lynch, Slocan Ramblers, Love Canon, David Benedict and lots more. Take a stroll in The Tall Grass, every Sunday at 6pm, on WNCW 88.7 and wncw.org.

We're workin' it on our Bluegrass get-together this week with the Labor Day weekend show - Celebrating the working folks. We're also proud to welcome the King James Boys to Studio B to pick some tunes and talk about their new CD, "Time To Go Home." Grab your seat on the train-every Saturday from 11am 'til 7pm with Hosts Joe Greene and Todd Baldwin.

Live Music Calendar Recordings

Joseph Llanes

We're glad to hear one of our favorite exports out of Knoxville has a new album on the way (September 28), and glad they're into stopping by WNCW in between gigs in Kentucky and Winston-Salem. Cruz Contreras founded this band about ten years ago following Robinella & the CC Stringband, and it's now a quartet featuring Sam Quinn, formerly of The Everybodyfields. They play "Live on the Green" in Charlotte's First Ward Park on 9/15.

Rod is a Rutherford County native, now living in Winston-Salem, with a new double-disc recorded in Charlotte. Wyatt has extensive experience in Nashville's music scene, as an executive with the likes of Keith Urban and Paul Thorn, which probably adds to his reputation as a great storyteller. They both are accomplished singer-songwriters and acoustic guitarists, and they both perform Wednesday evening at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall.

It may have been the name that first caught our attention, but it was their wide variety of styles we love here at WNCW that really drew us in (which they list here.) And there's the passion and sentiment on the title track to their new album "Get Us Out of Fearland."
