Our great friend, multi-instrumentalist, singer, storyteller and TV host David Holt returned to WNCW earlier this month to talk about his new, third season of his television series that highlights great roots music from our region.

Alternately known as the King of Telluride and the King of Newgrass, at age 57 Sam Bush has already been honored with a lifetime achievement award by the Americana Music Association and the International Bluegrass Music Association. Before his show on Saturday at The Foundation on the campus of Isothermal Community College in Spindale, NC, he will stop by the station during Goin' Across the Mountain on Saturday at 2:30pm for an interview.

Instruments at MerleFest 2016

Recap by Joe Kendrick -- Wilkesboro is only some 90 miles away from where I live, but going there for MerleFest always seems to transport me across much more than that short space and time. Winding my way through the rolling hills up highway 18 in late April has a uniquely soothing effect, and shifts my thoughts through the gears of choruses and solos, and faces and conversations of all the festivals I’ve attended.
