Paul Cauthen is one of Americana's best new singer/songwriters. We first got to know him when he was a member of the band Sons of Fathers. WNCW 's Music Director Martin Anderson spoke with Cauthen at September's AmericanaFest in Nashville, Tennessee during a morning spent at SoundStage Studios, following a late night showcase with a dozen or more other WNCW favorites musicians. We originally aired the interview on Wednesday, October 3rd, and now you can listen to the PODCAST.

We recently aired an interview Martin Anderson did with Richard Thompson - RT as he is known to his many fans, remains one of WNCW's most revered songwriters and guitarists. We've created a podcast so you can listen to it again or check it out if you missed it. His new music will be featured on Peak of the Week, Thursday night, at 9pm with Renee Denton.

Live Friday, September 28th around 10:30am: Amanda Shires

Yes she's the Texan fiddler married to Jason Isbell with her latest album recorded in Nashville by producer Dave Cobb. But throw out all your presumptions of what she'll sound like, because Amanda likes to keep you on your toes, which is one of the things we love about her. "I wanted the songs to have atmosphere,” Shires says. “That the album was going to be sort of poppy, and that I was doing that to bring some sunshine into the world, cause it’s pretty dark right now.” Her busy tour schedule rolls her through Asheville on Friday night.
