Live Monday, March 25th at 10:15am - Rodney Dillard

Mar 22, 2019

He was a musician and actor on the beloved Andy Griffith Show, he's been inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Association Hall of Fame, and he's revered as a cornerstone of both country rock and progressive bluegrass. Rodney Dillard still keeps quite a busy schedule, which includes a show with his band at The Grey Eagle on Monday night. Rodney visits with Martin on Monday morning following the Ten O'Clock Doc spotlight on Doc Watson.

Live Friday, March 22nd between 2 & 3pm: Bobby Long

Mar 16, 2019

Singer/songwriter Bobby Long is originally from near Manchester, England, and now calls New York City home. His latest album "Sultans" is a rather psychedelic, Beatle-esque collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Jack Dawson, and we'll get to know Bobby and the making of this new venture of his when he visits us in Studio B before his show Friday evening at New Belgium Brewing in Asheville, NC - not to be confused with the New Belgium in Colorado, where he'll play on April 5th!

Live Thursday, March 21st between 3 & 4pm: Tony Eltora

Mar 16, 2019

Tony helped put Taylorsville, NC on the musical map for us a couple years ago with his nice collection of blues, folk and rock, "Between Love & Tragedy." He's got a new one coming out, and a release show on Saturday in Morganton. Aside from his music, we like that Tony helped found the Hickory Music Factory in 2012, a non profit organization in Hickory, NC with the mission to build futures through music by teaching, performance and community outreach.

He's known as the guitarist for Freakwater by many, the man behind Drunken Prayer by others, and, well, Morgan Geer everywhere else. Especially Asheville and Portland, where he splits his time living. Perhaps you know him from The Unholy Trio, or touring with The Handsome Family. Whoever he is, we'll get to know him in Studio B this Wednesday! Drunken Prayer plays Saturday at the Mothlight in West Asheville.

We'll hear the ethereal songs and extraordinary harmonies of the Shook Twins, who were here in support of their new album “Some Good Lives,” said SBR Host Kim Clark. "Then we'll come down to earth with the blues rock of Frank Bang & the Secret Stash with good friend and musician Dan Johnston." We're always havin' a good time in Studio B at WNCW and we like to relive/revive/rewind and share those musical moments with you every Sunday evening at 7pm on Studio B Rewind.
