We'll go back to 2009 for the high-energy Latin rhythms of Grupo Fantasma, who had just been nominated for a Grammy, and had been playing some gigs with Prince. Also, from the summer of 2000, a session with a pillar of Americana music -  Jimmie Dale Gilmore, who was here right after the release of the album One Endless Night.


RADNEY FOSTER Live Friday, November 17th at 2pm

Texan Radney Foster has written eight #1 hits, whether on his own or during his time in Foster & Lloyd. His new album AND book For You To See the Stars, his 11th, covers a lot of ground through its various characters and landscapes, both physical and emotional. He plays Isis Music Hall in West Asheville on Friday night.

Chicago native Frank Bang was Buddy Guy's guitarist, and now plays with his band the Cook County Kings. He and Black Mountain's Dan Johnston stop by for a live "Spoonful of Blues" before playing White Horse Black Mountain Thursday evening.

Being a regional musician isn't easy for those living and working in Asheville and Western North Carolina.  One of the negatives for these artists is having adequate and affordable places to practice and in some cases record.  Musicians in their own right, Claude Coleman and Brett Spivey are trying to change this problem by creating what they call Sound Space.  Coleman and Spivey talked all about it during the Friday Feature that originally aired October 27, 2017.
