Studio B Rewind

Vicki Dameron

This Sunday, mark your calendar to stay home, stay out of the storm and listen to amazing music from Samantha Fish and Cicada Rhythm on WNCW. If you like blues and great harmonies... this session is for you! Members from both groups are professionally trained musicians. We are thrilled to bring these amazing sessions to you. Listen to WNCW. Stay home. Save gas. Eat hurricane snacks. Look out for your neighbors. Join Host Kim Clark every Sunday at 7pm for Studio B Rewind, brought to you by Sierra Nevada.

 David Ball and that Carolina Sound re-create the magic of Uncle Walt's Band, the legendary Spartanburg outfit that became one of the most popular bands on the Austin Texas scene in the late 1970s and early 80s. Plus, singer/songwriter, and Appalachian Trail thru-hiker Clarence Bucaro plays tunes from his latest album Passionate Kind, a record that has prompted Rolling Stone magazine to name him one of its “Ten Artists To Watch.” Join Host Kim Clark every Sunday Evening at 7pm on Studio B Rewind.

We're taking a trip down to New Orleans with the brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian sound of Cha Wa, led by Big Chief Monk Boudreaux's grandson J'Wan.  And, from the archives, Trombone Shorty in an interview and performance from 2011.

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.) Join Host Kim Clark Sunday evenings at 7pm on Studio B Rewind.

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.

Samantha Fish and her band with a dynamite, or as we like to say DYNO-MITE, session from just a couple of weeks ago, plus the Atlanta-based duo Cicada Rhythm, who turned in a well-received set at Merlefest shortly before their Studio B session.

We've got two great sessions from the road: Recorded live at the Mothlight in Asheville, it's the desert blues of the South Algerian band Imarhan. The group's brand new album Temet that has really impressed us. Also, from onstage at the Orange Peel before their respective shows there a couple of weeks ago, we'll hear M. Ward and Laura Veirs in exclusive WNCW performance/interviews. 

 

A special Easter edition with two legendary gospel groups: the Blind Boys of Alabama in a 2002 session and the Dixie Hummingbirds in our studio in 2006. Also, the sacred steel of the Lee Boys and Robert Randolph & The Family Band. Join Kim Clark, April 1st - Easter Sunday, as she brings a special Studio B Rewind to you at 7pm!

She had a #1 hit with the generation-defining song “At Seventeen” in 1975, eight years after her first single “Society's Child” had been banned by radio stations across the country due to its lyrics about inter-racial dating. She has released 21 albums to date, and in 2001, she was our guest in Studio B -  Janis Ian. We'll listen to that session, plus hear a great set from last year with the amazing Kruger Brothers, who were here in advance of their “Carolina In The Fall' festival appearance. Join Music Host Kim Clark Sunday evenings for Studio B Rewind.
