Ska, soul, and more converge with this high-energy sextet from New York, fronted by charismatic singer Nee Nee Rushie. Infectious tunes! They play the Asheville Music Hall on Friday night (supporting Dynamo.)
Two highly revered banjo maestros in bluegrass and other styles visit us on Saturday afternoon. Bill Evans keeps up a busy schedule as an instructor and mentor for professionals and amateurs alike, and Alan Munde is perhaps best known for his long tenure in Country Gazette, after starting off with Jimmy Martin & the Sunny Mountain Boys way back when. They each perform alone and together every once in a while, and it's a treat to welcome them both to WNCW for a chat with Joe Greene before their show at the Isis Restaurant & Music Hall's upstairs lounge Saturday evening.
