It's Amanda Anne Platt playing some tunes in a solo session and catching us up on the latest with her band the Honeycutters, and a new discovery of ours, Blue Yonder from Charleston, West Virginia, who were in the area last month for a show in Asheville.
We'll listen to Fireside Collective burnin' up Studio B right after the 4th of July, playing tunes from their album Life Between the Lines – and a couple of surprising covers. Also, in celebration of the new album by the Los Angeles indie band Dawes, we'll jump in our time machine and check out a 2012 session with them.
Samantha Fish and her band with a dynamite, or as we like to say DYNO-MITE, session from just a couple of weeks ago, plus the Atlanta-based duo Cicada Rhythm, who turned in a well-received set at Merlefest shortly before their Studio B session.
Music Host Joe Greene says he'll be featuring great bluegrass Saturday and he'll also play host to some very special guest musicians. "During the 4pm hour, Carolina Blue will be live in the studio with me to talk about and to premiere songs from their upcoming new album "Sounds of Kentucky Grass," said Greene. "The album is not available yet, even to radio stations, so this will be a "world premiere" of these songs from their new project. You'll remember that this is the band who wowed the crowd at GATM Live back in January." They hail from Transylvania County here in NC.
WNCW 88.7 FM and The Foundation will again present “Goin’ Across the Mountain Live” in honor of WNCW’s acclaimed Saturday afternoon bluegrass show. Headlining this year will be Rhonda Vincent and the Rage. Opening the show will be Carolina Blue, a Brevard, NC based, traditional bluegrass and gospel band.
