BONNIE BISHOP Live Thursday, June 23rd at 1pm

Jun 16, 2016

If the soul of Americana music lies somewhere near the crossroads of Texas, Mississippi, and Tennessee, then it should be no surprise that Bonnie Bishop embodies that sound pretty well. Her 6th album (Ain't Who I Was, produced by Grammy-winner Dave Cobb) is introducing her to a much larger audience, as is Bonnie Raitt, who has covered Bishop songs on her recent releases. Bonnie stops by Studio B for a live session Thursday afternoon (Bishop, that is), and plays The Evening Muse in Charlotte Friday night.

Coming up on this week's Merlefest Radio Hour, our Steve Johnson sits down to talk with the Jon Stickley Trio and Joe Greene will spin music from them, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Red June, Tony Rice Unit, Railroad Earth, The Brothers Comatose and more! Plus your dose of Doc and Merle! Sunday night at 6 on WNCW.
