Acoustic Music

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. You've likely heard us play songs from his new album Moonshine Blue lately. He plays Isis in West Asheville Saturday night.

Dan Lotti once said, “For me, the whole artistic process is rooted in a sort of spiritual practice. I’m not outwardly yogic, but every single day I’m involved in a yogic practice of meditation and stretching. I think that practice inevitably breathes and inspires the music. It opens you up to a lot of different perspectives.” For Dan and his band Dangermuffin, the music they make is meant for both fun and for healing. Their songs are both for bringing community together, and for letting loose and enjoying a tight jam. Here, those jams are mostly acoustic.

Studio B Rewind Host Kim Clark says the focus on this week's show is on domestic bliss and acoustic roots music. "We'll listen to The Appalucians, two talented Western NC couples who met at their kids' preschool, in Studio B playing songs from their debut album Bright Hills plus the husband-and-wife duo Birds of Chicago, said Clark. "They got together in Chicago, now live in Nashville, and stopped by our studio as part of their tour in support of the new release Love In Wartime."
