Carolyn Young filming for NPR's Night Owl series
Joe Kendrick

In this episode, we sample some of the many different styles of music WNCW loves to play, including some tasty covers by the likes of Infamous Stringdusters, Charley Crockett,  Dori Freeman and newcomer Elise LeGrow. Plus, a Doo Wop “Segue Of The Week”, and on DJ For A Day, a conversation with Isothermal Community College broadcast instructor Carolyn Young about our mini adventure with NPR filming videos for their Night Owl series, and more.

Fiddlers’ conventions have been going on in the South for over a century. Today you can find some of the very best fiddlers’ conventions here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Since 1972, musicians have been converging on the town of Mount Airy during the first weekend in June, for the world-famous Mount Airy Bluegrass and Old-Time Fiddlers’ Convention.

The mountains of North Carolina are rich in music traditions, both old and new, but no other musical community’s roots reach as far back in this region’s heritage as those of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians. To their ancient ceremonial music, the Cherokee have added new traditions in bluegrass, old-time, and gospel music.
