This Asheville alt-country trio consists of singer/songwriter, guitarist Kevin Fuller, bassist Ryan Kijanka and drummer Ryan Sargent. The band meshes crunchy guitar noise with folk, country and Americana stories. They play the Mothlight in West Asheville on Sunday the 23rd.

The two Afro-Beat giants were bound to make a spark when they met. Kaleta, from Benin and Nigeria, has played with Fela Kuti, King Sunny Ade, Majek Fashek, & Lauryn Hill, and now lives in NYC. The 6-piece psychedelic Afro-funk-and-rock band Super Yamba formed in Brooklyn in 2014, and have had Kaleta fronting them since 2017. We're excited to welcome their big sound back to Studio B before their show Wednesday night at The Mothlight in Asheville, NC.

Perhaps what the world needs now, is a group that weaves European, Middle Eastern, and American folk music together into a beautiful tapestry that simultaneously showcases tradition and innovation. Enter The Resonant Rogues, an Asheville ensemble that returns to Studio B with songs from their new release "Autumn of the World." Their hometown album release show is at The Mothlight on Friday the 31st.

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.

Join us at 7pm Sunday for Studio B Rewind - Courtney Marie Andrews's latest album “May Your Kindness Remain” got rave reviews from multiple music media sources after it was released earlier this year. She and her band played some songs from it for us live from the Mothlight in Asheville, NC this past March. We loved it so much, we featured a song from the session, on our new Crowd Around The Mic Volume 22.
