Dana and Sue used to call Marshall, NC home, and many in WNC will remember this sweet couple contributing to the local old-time and folk music scene. They moved back to Vermont a few years back, and are back in the area in support of  The Town That Music Saved: A Collection of Vermont-Inspired Songs. They play Isis in West Asheville Thursday night.

Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival

Hailed as “The new master of the slide guitar” by the Montreux Jazz Festival and “The real thang” by the legendary Bootsy Collins, Lincolnshire, England folk/blues musician Jack Broadbent has spent the the past few years wowing international audiences with his unique blend of virtuosic acoustic and slide guitar and songs.

Asheville's Civic Center Has A New Name

Feb 6, 2020

For many years this downtown Asheville venue has hosted concerts, conferences, trade shows, sporting events and more, attracting attendees from all over western North Carolina.  What had been known in recent years as the U.S. Cellular Center has now become 'Harrah's Cherokee Center Asheville' - the same Harrah's that oversees Harrah's Cherokee Casino in North Carolina. The Center's General Manager Chris Corl was our guest and he talked about what has happened and previewed news about exciting additions for the future.  

Our friends in Unspoken Tradition bring some live bluegrass to "Goin' Across the Mountain" this Saturday! As they say most accurately, their material reflects the ever-changing culture of Western & Central North Carolina where they call home. Audie McGinnis on guitar, Ty Gilpin on mandolin, Tim Gardner on fiddle, Sav Sankaran on bass, & Zane McGinnis on banjo. They play Saturday night at Isis Resturant & Music Hall in Asheville, NC.

We were pleased to learn the news recently that David Childers has a new project! His band the Serpents has a bit of a different sound than his Modern Don Juans, and they've just released an album that was recorded old-school, analog-style titled "Interstate Lullaby" which will be featured during "New Tunes at 2" this Tuesday. They'll debut some new songs live in Studio B. Upcoming shows include the WinterSkunk Music Fest at the Spinning Jenny in Greer on Saturday the 8th, followed by appearances in Boone, Charlotte, NC and more.

After moving around for a number of years, Christopher Paul Stelling has been settling down some in Asheville. But he's just about to embark on a national tour for his new album Best of Luck, produced by one of his biggest fans and mentors, Ben Harper. “I really believe this record is the intersection where folk and soul meet,” Harper says.

Ram Mandelkorn  (The Digs, other Asheville bands) has a great sounding squad that will join him in Studio B  before their album release show at The Mothlight in Asheville Friday the 31st. Get ready for an Earthquake of cool grooves!

From Studio B Rewind Host Kim Clark:
