After a childhood in which her musical ambitions were by and large supressed, Amelia White fled for Boston and its thriving folk scene, and now calls East Nashville home. Her latest release "Old Postcard" has received great reviews from such outlets as American Songwriter, No Depression, and WXPN, and she'll spend time with Martin Anderson in Studio B while passing through our area.
The Asheville Percussion Festival returns on June 20th-22nd, now in its third year. 20 workshops, various concerts and demonstrations, and percussion vending take over downtown Asheville, and we'll talk with Lizz Wright (one of our favorite modern soul/R&B singers, who now calls Asheville home), River Guergarian, Chris Rosser, and perhaps other participants on Wednesday afternoon.
We celebrate the June 8th birthday of one of our favorite guitarists of all time with this 5-star album that also features Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, & Ricky Skaggs, and a great collection of songs from the pens of Merle Travis, Norman Blake, Gordon Lightfoot, Jimmy Martin, and the Delmore Brothers, not to mention definitive versions of some old traditional tunes.
Funk, Soul, & Jazz combine for this ninth studio release from The UK's New Mastersounds. This one features guest vocalist Kim Dawson (The Motet), and saxophonist Ryan Zoidis (Lettuce.) We still can't believe we had these guys in Studio B once!
