WNCW's Music Mix with Joe Kendrick

Mondays at noon

Joe Kendrick mixes a unique blend of Americana, blues, roots, jazz, Celtic, world music and more (waaaaaay more) to spice your lunch hour and keep your afternoon jumping! If WNCW gave out superlatives, Joe would likely be voted "Most likely to play Yo La Tengo and Raymond Scott in the same set". Special features include New Tunes at 2 (spotlighting a new album with 3 songs in the mix, which happens Mondays through Thursdays in the 2 o'clock hour) as well as live performances from WNCW's world-famous Studio B.

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.

He may hail from Western NC's Swannanoa Valley, but Turchi's strongest musical influence is steeped in the North Mississippi Hill Country. He plays Swannanoa's Native Kitchen Thursday evening, and French Broad Brewery in Asheville on Saturday. Perhaps with his Kudzu Choir?

Olivia Chaney Live Wednesday, July 25th between 2 & 3pm

Jul 23, 2018

She's a classically-trained singer and pianist, but we first discovered Olivia Chaney thanks to her collaboration with The Decemberists in the group Offa Rex last year. The project showcased her deep connection with the British folk revival. She has a new solo release out on Nonesuch Records, and is in the area for a show at the Grey Eagle in Asheville Wednesday night.
