DAVID JACOBS-STRAIN Live Thursday, October 20th at 11am

A child prodigy of slide-guitar blues while growing up in Eugene, Oregon, David Jacobs-Strain continues to hone his own style with each release of his. “I try to make art that you can dance to, but I love that darker place, where in my mind,  Skip James, Nick Drake, and maybe Elliot Smith blur together.” David rolls through the area on Thursday the 20th with a show at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall in West Asheville.

The ever charming Nikki Talley and partner-in-life-and-music Jason Sharp pay us a visit again, this time to fill an hour as Guest DJ! We'll make sure they play a few of their own tunes live, too. They play The Grey Eagle in Asheville on Friday before heading down to festivals in Florida and Georgia.

DAVID LAMOTTE Live Tuesday, August 23rd at 11am

Aug 18, 2016

After a bit of a hiatus to spend time as a peace activist, children's book author, nonprofit director, public speaker, father, and more, Black Mountain singer/songwriter David LaMotte is back into music full time with an eclectic, ambitious new album. Join him and Martin Anderson Tuesday morning for songs from The Other Way Around. His CD Release Show is September 2nd in Asheville.

THE HONEYCUTTERS Live Friday, August 19th at 3pm

Aug 18, 2016

One of Asheville's favorite bands, The Honeycutters released On the Ropes this year on Arden, NC's Organic Records. Singer/songwriter Amanda Platt and another member or two of the band will talk with Roland Friday afternoon to catch up on what's been happening with them lately. The band plays Tryon's Rogers Park Amphitheatre for the "Summer Tracks" series Friday evening.

ROBERT ELLIS Live Thursday, June 30th at 2pm

Jun 23, 2016

The Lights From the Chemical Plant, this Texas-to-Nashville songwriter's previous album, was a big hit among WNCW listeners. He's moved his sound in a bit of a different direction on his new, self-titled one, but his sharp, wry, insightful songwriting remains intact. He and his band play Knoxville on Wednesday and Charlotte on Thursday.  He will join us live in the Air Studio at 2pm on Thursday, June 30.
