Air Studio

What an honor to have these two banjo greats return to WNCW. Join us as we welcome Bela and Abigail at the start of Goin' Across the Mountain, on their way to Shelby for a show Saturday evening at the Don Gibson Theatre. Béla's current Grammy count is 15 Grammys won, and 30 nominations. He has been nominated in more different musical categories than anyone in Grammy history.

HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER Friday, October 13th just past 10am

Oct 10, 2017

M.C. Taylor of Hiss Golden Messenger is one of the artists we at WNCW have enjoyed following the most these past few years, and his new release "Hallelujah Anyhow" does not disappoint! Martin Anderson had a brief talk with Taylor in Nashville during AmericanaFest recently, and we'll air the interview just past 10am this Friday. Hiss Golden Messenger plays in Asheville on Friday, October 20th.

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.

ALAN MUNDE & BILL EVANS Live Saturday, August 5th at 4pm

Jul 31, 2017

Two highly revered banjo maestros in bluegrass and other styles visit us on Saturday afternoon. Bill Evans keeps up a busy schedule as an instructor and mentor for professionals and amateurs alike, and Alan Munde is perhaps best known for his long tenure in Country Gazette, after starting off with Jimmy Martin & the Sunny Mountain Boys way back when. They each perform alone and together every once in a while, and it's a treat to welcome them both to WNCW for a chat with Joe Greene before their show at the Isis Restaurant & Music Hall's upstairs lounge Saturday evening.
