CHARLIE PARR Live Friday the 13th at 1pm

Oct 10, 2017

This terrific guitarist covers issues of mental health and life's purpose on his latest release "Dog". His perspective is largely influenced by his time spent working with the homeless throughout his native Minnesota. Charlie will sing a few songs and chat with Scotty on Friday afternoon before playing The Mothlight in Asheville that night. He also plays Free Range Brewing in Charlotte on Saturday, and Barley's Taproom in Knoxville on Sunday.

More than just a great bluegrass trio, Swiss-American brothers Uwe and Jens Kruger and New York brother Joel Landsberg keep themselves busy with classical music collaborations (the Roan Mountain Suite), running a festival (Carolina in the Fall, 9/22-23 in Wilkesboro), and more. They visit with Scotty here on Wednesday afternoon.

Get set for some modern day honky-tonk and roots rock from Eilen Jewell, JD McPherson and newcomer Haley Thompson-King, plus a new double disc from Luna, who fortunately decided to get back together, plus we’ll go dark with a couple picks from our nighttime sound -- a truly deep concept record from Public Service Broadcasting paired up with a classic track from Joy Division for our Segue Of The Week. DJ For A Day features WNCW midday host and Rhythm Theorem host Scotty Robertson, as we share stories of just how wrong things can go with live guests on the radio.
