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.
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.
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.
