Thursday at 11am: Jake Blount

Jake Blount.jpg

Jake began a focus on old-time music in 2013, and has since collaborated with many of the genre’s best pickers. He’s been a repeated winner at Clifftop competitions, and in 2020 he received the prestigious Steve Martin Banjo Prize, plus released his first solo album “Spider Tales”, a fascinating exploration of Black and Indigenous mountain music (which he studied extensively in college.) He’s got a new direction in his sound with a new song called “The Man Was Burning”. He plays Isis in West Asheville on Saturday the 5th.

Martin is the voice of WNCW weekday mornings from 9 to noon. As WNCW's Music Director, Martin reviews copious amounts of new music and decides what makes the WNCW music rotation. He also books our live in Studio B sessions.
