Come be a part of the studio audience for Local Color Live at New Mountain Theater, at 38 North French Broad Avenue in downtown Asheville. Hosted by WNCW's own Laura Blackley. Our next edition features Asheville songstress Lyric, and some newcomers to the Asheville music scene, recent Northern California transplants the Paper Crowns. Each month we'll offer a different sampling of the diverse musical menu that makes up our listening reach--movers, shakers and makers of all things local and colorful.
Black Mountain's own Seth Kauffman visits with Joe Kendrick on Wednesday to talk about Floating Action's great new release, and various other happenings with this band that's getting a lot of buzz this summer.
This fun band from DC takes you back to the brothels of New Orleans, the hollers of Appalachia, and other hotbeds of blues, jazz, and country that were captured on those old '78's of yesteryear. They stop by WNCW's Air Studio on their way to Altamont Brewery in Asheville for a Friday night concert.
This weekend marked the 45th anniversary of Woodstock, and earlier this summer we lost one of its highlight acts, the fiery blues guitarist and singer Johnny Winter. We'll remember both on Monday night with Winter's blazing self-titled debut, which also came out in 1969.
The driving force behind so many classics from The Band was known for hosting great multiple act shows (and potlucks!) at his famous barn home in Woodstock, NY, called Midnight Rambles. We've enjoyed spinning you tunes from this new, eclectic volume, featuring Chris Robinson, Allen Toussaint, Amy Helm, and of course the humble host himself among others in the spotlight. Levon's spirit lives on here at WNCW.
Mark Capon and Matt Schnable of Harvest Records will guest DJ with Joe Kendrick on Monday, August 11 at 4pm.
Tune in as they talk about the celebration of 10 years of Harvest Records with Transfigurations II. Joe will also talk to them about their work in bringing live performances to western NC, their record label and a host of other music-related topics.
