ROBERT ELLIS Live Thursday, June 30th at 2pm

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.

They play West Asheville on Saturday. "With a sound that reflects generations of Nova Scotian fiddlers, and a youthful charm that literally pops out from their recordings, Cassie and Maggie ensure that the true folk ways of their home community reaches the broader world." -Penguin Eggs
