We're in the Christmas spirit this week! We'll listen to the Morganton, NC - based ensemble Joseph Hasty Centerpiece Jazz in a special holiday-themed Studio B session recorded in December 2018. Hasty and his talented comrades will be playing in venues throughout the 2018 holiday season in Hickory and Morganton, NC. We'll then switch gears from jazz to Americana on SBR this weekend...

Studio B Rewind Host Kim Clark says the focus on this week's show is on domestic bliss and acoustic roots music. "We'll listen to The Appalucians, two talented Western NC couples who met at their kids' preschool, in Studio B playing songs from their debut album Bright Hills plus the husband-and-wife duo Birds of Chicago, said Clark. "They got together in Chicago, now live in Nashville, and stopped by our studio as part of their tour in support of the new release Love In Wartime."

Studio B Rewind - Sundays at 7pm With Kim Clark.

This week we're going to reach back into the archives to listen to some past sessions with artists who currently have new albums on our playlist. We'll hear the late great Charles Bradley performing live for us in 2013, Nikki Hill from 2014, and the Bottle Rockets in our studio in a 2015 session. Join host Kim Clark every Sunday at 7pm for a look back at amazing sessions recorded in Studio B at WNCW.

Studio Be Rewind Host Kim Clark is bringing us two sessions this weekend, both produced earlier this year by WNCW Sound Engineer Sean Rubin. On Sunday, Nov. 25th at 7pm, catch the music of the honky tonk - roots group, Yellow Feather. The group is based in Old Fort, NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains. One of the incredible recordings from this session ended up being featured on our 2018 Crowd Around The Mic CD Set.

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.

The Charleston-based band The Artisanals' self-titled debut album blends 70s rock, alt-Americana-and great songwriting, and they played songs from it live for us when they were in Studio B last month. We'll re-visit that session this week on Studio B Rewind and we'll also check out a session with Banjo Nickaru and Western Scooches, an outfit that's as delightfully quirky as they sound. Join Kim Clark every Sunday evening at 7pm for Studio B Rewind.

The small town of Old Fort is the location of the Mountain Gateway Museum, Catawba Falls, and Andrews Geyser - plus it's home base for the band Yellow Feather... and their couch farm! They recently played live for us in Studio B, and you'll hear that session (and find out what a couch farm is) on this week's Studio B Rewind. Also, Appalachian Mountain music meets Japan in the beautiful, unique work of Anya Hinkle, Akira Satake, and Duncan Wickel. (Yellow Feather top image. Hinkle/Satake/Wickel bottom photo.)

We've got the home fires burning in this edition with two recent sessions featuring couples who are life partners as well as collaborators in music:  The Appalucians, two talented Western NC couples who met at their kids' preschool, and the husband-and-wife duo Birds of Chicago. Both of these acts have brand new albums that they preview in these very cool live performances.

Tupelo, Mississippi singer/songwriter Paul Thorn has a brand new album, Don't Let The Devil Ride, so we thought it would be a good time to rewind back to 2002 for a really fun session with him centered around the Mission Temple Fireworks Stand album. We'll also listen to Asheville singer-songwriter Jane Kramer, backed by Free Planet Radio and Billy Cardine in a recent visit to Studio B. Join Host Kim Clark for Studio B rewind, Sundays at 7pm.
