Jan 24, 2018

One of the hottest bands in contemporary bluegrass pays us a visit during Goin' Across the Mountain, on their way to the Old Rock School in Valdese Saturday evening. It's not surprising that Buddy Melton of Balsam Range says, “What defines a great band?

WNCW is proud to again partner with the Foundation Performing Arts Center to present “Goin’ Across the Mountain Live.” WNCW’s acclaimed bluegrass show “Goin’ Across the Mountain” is a favorite of traditional and contemporary bluegrass fans across the region every Saturday afternoon. Now it comes to life on stage as we bring together some of the biggest names in bluegrass music.

Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and Blue Highway with be playing this fundraiser for WNCW at Isothermal Community College Auditorium in Spindale, NC on Friday, January 12.  The show starts at 7 pm.

Host Joe Kendrick brings in a fresh batch of new music for you, including jazz, funk, bluegrass, Americana and Celtic, with a Segue Of The Week going back to British guitar legend Bert Jansch’s 1979 album Avocet. DJ For A Day sees our own Stephanie Webb and Kim Henson prepping us for our Fall Fund Drive in a conversation highlighting what weeks (make that months) of preparation go into the event, and what is new for our lineup of thank-you gifts this time around. Many of these songs featured in the episode are on our thank-you discs available during the fund drive as well.
