One of our favorite singer/songwriters, from Asheville or anywhere really, returns to Studio B, this time with songs from his new release "Them and Us". He plays the Grey Eagle in Asheville on Sunday the 6th. Play ball! And Chuck!

North African bands that blend traditional Tourag music with modern rock, like Tinariwen, Toumast, and Bombino, are one of the most exciting sounds in world music these days. Our latest discovery is Imarhan, which translates to "The ones I care about." Join Joe Kendrick (and an interpreter) for a live session with them from The Mothlight in West Asheville on Monday afternoon around 4 or 5!

Lincoln County based singer-songwriter Lily Tallent talked with (volunteer) Jaclyn. Lily talked about working on her first album. The interview features three original songs and a different take on an old favorite.
