Carolina Blue

We are officially in our Pre-drive stage and ready to show you some of our thank you gifts for our fundraiser that begins October 21st and ends October 27th. Pre-drive means we are offering many of our gifts at a $20 discount for items like our new Crowd Around The Mic CD 22. It's an amazing compilation of many of our Studio B performances this year. We hope you like it - we do! You can go to wncw.org and click on donate to help listener-powered radio in its 29th year of being on the air.

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.

We've got some home-grown bluegrass with Brevard-based Carolina Blue playing some tunes for us from their new album “Sounds of Kentucky Grass.” Also, the psycho-tropic folk of the Austin, Texas band The Deer live in our studio.

 

World Premier of Carolina Blue's Newest Album

May 17, 2017

Bobby Powell and Tim Jones of Carolina Blue visited with Host Joe Greene on Saturday, May 6 during Goin' Across the Mountain.  They sample tracks from their new release Sounds of Kentucky Grass, making it the "world premier" of these songs on their new project.  Bobby and Tim discuss family ties to the album, reminisce about playing at WNCW's Goin' Across the Mountain Live earlier this year, and also about the old sound their band is proud to keep going.
