WNCW's Music Mix with Roland Dierauf

Weekdays 3pm to 6pm

Roland Dierauf wanders everyday through the cultural landscape that informs contemporary music.  Starting with the roots of early blues and country, he says hello to their many quirky offspring -- bluegrass, rock, alt country, jazz, funk, international rhythms, and all the endless hybrids.  It's music as big and varied and delightful as the people who make it.  Be a part of it, weekday afternoons on WNCW.

River Whyless Live Wednesday, July 18th between 3 and 4pm

Jul 16, 2018

One of our favorite bands of late -- local or otherwise -- happens to have a couple days off around home, and Ryan O'Keefe, Halli Anderson, Alex McWalters, & Daniel Shearin have offered to spend part of the day with us in Studio B. They've got a terrific collection of timely songs on Kindness, A Rebel. 

It's the music of Uncle Walt's Band, Spartanburg's legendary group that is often heralded as a cornerstone of today's Americana music genre, this Friday. David Ball, Warren Hood, Marshall Hood & friends have been jamming together lately, and they play at the FR8Yard in downtown Spartanburg (125 E. Main St.) both Friday and Saturday nights.

Blue Yonder Live Friday, July 6th Between 4 and 5pm

Jun 28, 2018

We've discovered a band from Charleston, WV that we think you might like. They take early country and folk music – from swing to honky-tonk, bluegrass to rockabillly, hymns to pop folk, and add a contemporary twist. They're in the area for a show at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall in West Asheville Friday evening. A Studio B double-header this Friday!

Fireside Collective Live Thursday, July 5th at 3pm

“Bluegrass, Newgrass, perhaps Progressive folk…” That's how Jesse Iaquinto (mandolin), Tommy Maher (dobro), Carson White (bass), Joe Cicero (guitar), and Alex Genova (banjo) describe their Asheville band that we are excited to welcome to Studio B on Thursday. They received an IBMA Momentum Award nomination last year, and momentum is certainly another descriptive term that applies to them this year.  They play the River Jam in Charlotte Thursday evening.

Voted the # 1 Rock N Roll band in WNC by Mountain Xpress Magazine 2015, 2016 and 2017, Andrew Scotchie & the River Rats have a new release, with its official release show at Highland Brewing on the 29th. And he's working on this September's Asheville Barnaroo festival, which he started in 2009 in his mom's backyard.
