Artists who synthesize different musical styles into something new and unique are the focus this week: We've got Che Apalache in a recent session, showing off their joyous mash-up of Appalachian and Latin music. Plus, the jazz-meets-world beat of regional favorites Free Planet Radio, who were here back in November to play tunes from their latest release, “Pursuit”. Join host Kim Clark Sunday evening at 7. 

It's time for the Mountain Song Festival and folks are gearing up for another incredible music event at one of the most popular venues in western North Carolina, the Brevard Music Center in Brevard, North Carolina. The lineup, as usual, is phenomenal. The host band is a WNCW fave, The Steep Canyon Rangers. The Grammy Award winning group calls "The Land of Waterfalls" home - and, to the delight of music lovers, they play multiple times during the festival. Yes. The amazing, full lineup for the three day event looks like this:

FRIDAY

Not your momma's Argentinian bluegrass band... She didn't have one, did she?! Actually, this string band out of Argentina, Mexico, and North Carolina incorporates a lot of great Latin American styles into their shows as well as bluegrass and old-time, and we're excited to welcome to 'NCW for their first appearance. They play the Mountain Song Festival in Brevard on Saturday.
