WNCW LIVE MUSIC

Front Country and Life Like Water in Studio B
Vicki Dameron

Tune in Sunday at 7pm for the peaceful and expansive music of the Asheville-based band Life Like Water, who take their name and their outlook on life from the writings of ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu.  Also, a recent session featuring the "roots pop" of Front Country, who delivered surprisingly funky takes on classic Carter Family and Woody Guthrie songs plus gave us a sneak peek into their forthcoming new album, due next year.

Live Monday, April 22nd just past 2pm: Rising Appalachia

Apr 19, 2019

"We’re folk singers and we consider this a folk album, so there’s a lot in there. There’s word of politics, of being women in the music industry, as well as a lot about our lives on the road", says Chloe Smith of Rising Appalachia, describing their new album released on May 3rd. Leylines also draws on African and urban influences, with David Brown (bass, guitar), Biko Casini (world percussion, n’goni), Arouna Diarra (n’goni, talking drum) and Duncan Wickel (fiddle, cello) joining Chloe and her sister Leah Song.
