We began the month of November with one of our favorite Studio B guests- Randall Bramblett and his band, who were in the area for a couple of shows following a week of work on a forthcoming new album. We'll listen to that session in its entirety and also rewind back to November 2006 for a session with Chris Thile and the How to Grow a Band, who were touring in support of the album How To Grow a Woman From the Ground Up, which would be nominated for a Grammy.

  The 2018 International Bluegrass Music Award Ceremony was held last week in Raleigh, North Carolina at The Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts. The event was hosted by one of WNCW's favorite bands, HOT RIZE. Many of the IBMA musicians are long time friends of our grassroots, listener-powered radio station and we want to take time and congratulate the winners - Job well done!
