Live Tuesday, May 14th between 2 & 3pm: Sugaray Rayford

May 10, 2019

“I’m a freak of nature / I ain’t no honey bee / I’m an unknown creature / The like you’ve never seen.” Thus begins "The Revelator", the first song on his great new release Somebody Save Me. And it also might describe Mr. Rayford pretty well, too. He's been nominated for two 2019 Blues Music Awards, and we can't wait to get to know him and his band Tuesday afternoon. They play Asheville Tuesday night, and Charlotte on Saturday night.

Statesville, NC singer-songwriter Matt Walsh's music has one of those genre-blending sounds that combines so many different styles, we just refer to it as "good music." He and his band have a new album "The Midnight Strain" that officially releases this Saturday - Shows this week include performances in Salisbury, NC Friday, Charlotte, NC - AND, Lexington, NC on Saturday. They'll pile into Studio B for our first live session there since our successful Fall Fund Drive.
