Today on Local Color

On Sunday's edition, our "Local Color...Live at Landslide" series resumes, with an interview/performance from Asheville performer Lyric. Courtesy Landslide Studio in Asheville.

Our Album Spotlight is from Asheville quintet, Sanctum Sully. We'll spin 3 tracks from their newest release, a bluegrassy affair, titled "Trade Winds."

Local Color

Local Color spotlights emerging artists from all over our listening area, with a focus on those who are pushing the envelope just a bit. Live performances, official releases, demos, and exclusive in-studio performances will all add to "Local Color."
