Live Friday, May 11th at 3pm: Samantha Fish

May 4, 2018

“You should always get outside of the box,” Samantha Fish says while discussing her boundary-breaking new album Belle of the West. “Challenging yourself is how you grow.” And that's just what she's done, with that and her earlier 2017 release that we also love, Chills and Fever. We're delighted she can come to Studio B for her first visit, en route to LEAF in Black Mountain!

Asheville's Toubab Krewe has their first album in nearly four years with “Stylo.” They played some tunes from it for us in a live session from the Ellington Underground last week. If you missed it, here's your chance to check out their amazing blend of West African and American Southern vibes. Plus, from the vaults, banjo master (and record label executive) Alison Brown, who played live in our studio back in 2006.

Rhythm N’ Blooms Music Festival has rounded out its April 6-8, 2018 lineup. Americana roots/rock headliners Deer Tick, will join previously announced headliners Dr. Dog and Paul Thorn’s Mission Temple Fireworks Revival ft. The McCrary Sisters.

Two great musicians take the stage in West Asheville Wednesday evening, and we're excited to bring you a preview with both of them that afternoon. Phoebe Hunt showcased her great Texas/Americana jazz and swing foundation with the Belleville Outfit earlier this decade, and now she breaks out on her own with a new sound, inspired by some intensive study time in India. Dori Freeman impressed us with her first full-length album last year, and it sounds like her great Galax, Virginia foundation continues to show on her forthcoming album, too.
