Live on Wednesday the 10th at 4pm: ROBIN & LINDA WILLIAMS

We've been reflecting more on our first few years on the air lately, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary this fall.  So it is extra special that we can announce the return of Robin & Linda to Studio B, who were a fixture of our sound from the beginning -- it's been too long since they've been here!

Friday the 12th at 3pm: TWO MAN GENTLEMEN BAND

It's hot raucous retro-swing and more when Andy Bean and Fuller Condon return for another rousing set.  Tin Pan Alley tunes, mandolin rags, banjo numbers, and plenty of originality from these two gents.  They play Asheville Friday night and Knoxville on Monday the 15th.

Friday the 12th at 11am: CURTIS MCMURTRY

Curtis grew up in Austin, listening to local songwriters like Matt The Electrician, Jon Dee Graham, and his father, James.  After studying music composition at Saint Lawrence College in New York, he moved to Nashville to study further with the likes of Fred Koller and Guy Clark, with whom he has done some co-writing.  Get to know this great new songwriter, and the memorable, mostly haunted characters he has created through his impressive songs, when he stops by WNCW on Friday on his way to Asheville.

Thursday Night the 11th between 9pm and Midnight: FLOATING ACTION - Body Questions

Black Mountain's Seth Kauffman has released his fourth album under the name Floating Action, and he seems to be continually perfecting his work with each one.  It's an understatement to say he knows his way around the studio, with great production and arrangement here, and he plays every instrument except the keyboards. Even the cover art is his!  Sublime indie rock, dub, soul, and a pop sensibility are all found here -- it's no wonder he's had the opportunity to work with the likes of Dan Auerach and Jim James.  We'll feature it throughout the evening Thursday.
