BECKY WARREN Live Wednesday, May 10th at 11am

May 10, 2017

Winner of 2014's Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at MerleFest, Becky Warren released a thematic album last year about a soldier's tour of duty in Iraq and subsequent reacclimation to life back in the U.S. with his girlfriend. In addition to having some seriously fun rockers, War Surplus weaves the songs together to tell quite a vivid story of coping with PTSD, and fighting to keep love alive. The Nashville musician pays us a visit Wednesday morning at the wrap-up of a long tour on the road.

I DRAW SLOW
Martin Anderson, 2014

Beautiful songwriting and sweet harmonies mark the original tunes and traditional Appalachian gems from this favorite band of ours, who returns to Studio B for the second time. They certainly have a soft spot for Western North Carolina's mountains and towns, as evidenced by some of their songs. But if you detect a bit of an Irish lilt in their voices, you are correct: they hail from Dublin. They play Isis in West Asheville on Wednesday night, and Merlefest on Saturday.

ZOE & CLOYD
David Simchock

Zoe is Natalya Zoe Weinstein, Cloyd is John Cloyd Miller. After a few years with the fine trio Red June, this acoustic Appalachian duo has their 2nd release, once again steeped in mountain roots music, though nearly all of their songs are originals. They'll introduce us to some of the songs on Eyes Brand New on Friday morning before their Sunday CD release show in Asheville.
