Soul/rock/dance band The Fritz settled in Asheville in 2011, after forming in college in Florida. They have a new EP out Friday, and a show in Asheville Saturday night the 13th, and we're glad to have them serve up a funky, soulful lunch in Studio B  on Wednesday. Check out this new video of theirs here.

Tune in as Seth Kaufmann's band brings us a live "Wicked Wednesday" with this session from the Wicked Weed Funkatorium in Asheville. Joe Kendrick will talk with Seth from the stage, between songs, about the new release "Heartache Essentials." Floating Action plays a full set later in the evening.

Asheville's "Hard-drivin' Carolina String Band" likes to take their strong bluegrass roots and branch out into influences from the likes of Waylon, Willie & Merle, great covers from the Grateful Dead and Bruce Springsteen, and contemporaries like Tyler Childers, Railroad Earth, and Jim Lauderdale. We're pleased to report Town Mountain has a great new album on the way called New Freedom Blues, and we'll catch up with them Friday amidst their shows in Boone on Thursday, Charlotte on Friday, and Asheville on Saturday.

Wednesday morning we'll be airing our Barrel House Session recorded LIVE at the Wicked Weed Funkatorium in Asheville, NC. WNCW's Spencer Jones braved the storm and hosted the show Saturday, September 15th. In this session he brings us music from the Songs From The Road Band. Stay with us, the show airs right after NPR Headline News at 10am!
