Joel "George" Timmons and Shelby "Sally" Means come together from the bands Sol Driven Train and Della Mae, respectively. After meeting at the 2012 Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion thanks to shared gigs there, the two sparked a close partnership both on and off stage (congratulate them on their engagement around here last July!) Their first album together was formed in Laramie, Charleston, and Nashville, with interesting stories for each. The names Sally and George? That's another story we'll get out of them this Friday.

New York brothers Eric and Leigh have those wonderful brotherly harmonies and shared intuition that really come out in bluegrass. Add to that Jesse Brock, Clayton Campbell, Mike Barber, & others who have teamed up with them, and you have one of the tightest bands in bluegrass today. They're back with a new release, and shows in Charlotte Thursday (Stage Door Theatre) and Asheville Friday (Isis Restaurant & Music Hall).

Hear some new tunes this week in Episode 3 of On The Way Up.  Also, get a glimpse behind the scenes as Roland talks to Joe about the amount of music that comes to WNCW and how the music is selected for air play.
