Imarhan

We've got two great sessions from the road: Recorded live at the Mothlight in Asheville, it's the desert blues of the South Algerian band Imarhan. The group's brand new album Temet that has really impressed us. Also, from onstage at the Orange Peel before their respective shows there a couple of weeks ago, we'll hear M. Ward and Laura Veirs in exclusive WNCW performance/interviews.

RADNEY FOSTER
Marshall Foster

Texan Radney Foster has written eight #1 hits, whether on his own or during his time in Foster & Lloyd. His new album AND book For You To See the Stars, his 11th, covers a lot of ground through its various characters and landscapes, both physical and emotional. He plays Isis Music Hall in West Asheville on Friday night.

Being a regional musician isn't easy for those living and working in Asheville and Western North Carolina.  One of the negatives for these artists is having adequate and affordable places to practice and in some cases record.  Musicians in their own right, Claude Coleman and Brett Spivey are trying to change this problem by creating what they call Sound Space.  Coleman and Spivey talked all about it during the Friday Feature that originally aired October 27, 2017.

Each year, more than 1 million visitors flock to Biltmore Estate in Asheville, to tour its gorgeous gardens and cavernous halls.  The house was built by George Vanderbilt between 1889-1895 and is the largest home ever to exist in America.  George and his beloved bride, Edith, are a major part of the new book, "The Last Castle: The Epic Story of Love, Loss, and American Royalty In The Nation's Largest Home" by Denise Kiernan.  Kiernan was interviewed by WNCW for this Friday Feature, presented Sept. 22, 2017.
