We'll revisit a couple of recent sessions by bands that have brand new albums: 

The bluegrass super group Songs From The Road Band will be playing tunes from their latest Road To Nowhere and our friends from Knoxville, TN, the Black Lillies, will be showcasing their evolution into a full-blown rock band when they play songs from their new album Stranger To Me. Sunday with Kim Clark at 7pm.

 

  The 2018 International Bluegrass Music Award Ceremony was held last week in Raleigh, North Carolina at The Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts. The event was hosted by one of WNCW's favorite bands, HOT RIZE. Many of the IBMA musicians are long time friends of our grassroots, listener-powered radio station and we want to take time and congratulate the winners - Job well done!

We've got bluegrass all the way from Ontario, Canada in a session with the Slocan Ramblers, who were in the area last month for Jam in the Trees. Reed Turchi and the Kudzu Choir were at Jam in the Trees, too, and they joined us in Studio B to play tunes from the new album Just A Little More Faith. Join Kim Clark this Sunday at 7pm for Studio B Rewind.
