RIVER WHYLESS

We are pleased to welcome one of Asheville's most intriguing new bands to Studio B for the first time this Friday. Halli Anderson, Daniel Shearin, Ryan O'Keefe and Alex McWalters make up this band, and they have a wonderful new collection of songs. One of them has become the music bed for Asheville's lovely promotional video. They play their hometown on Saturday night.

JORMA KAUKONEN

We at WNCW feel so honored when incredibly talented music legends visit us, not just once but multiple times.

His latest album is Ain't In No Hurry on Red House Records.

Live Thursday February 19th at 3pm: PACKWAY HANDLE BAND

Georgia's Packway Handle Band is rooted in old-school bluegrass, but you will no doubt hear their nods to rock, punk, and more as well. For their latest project, they recruited the talented, one-of-a-kind Southern songwriter Jim White to put on his producer's hat, but he ended up lending everything but the kitchen sink in what can be truly be called a full-scale collaboration.

Darin Back

With her intriguing blend of Appalachian, jazz and rock, Laney Jones has been winning a string of awards lately, from such corners as the Kennedy Center's American Voices and other festivals, Eddie's Attic, and the Southern Musician Showcase.

Live Thursday the 8th at 2pm: JONATHAN BYRD

Many of us first got to know his music when he sang about WNCW's ARC Overnight show on 2003's "Radio", and his latest album is You Can't Outrun the Radio. But these aren't the only reasons Jonathan is one of our favorite NC songwriters; he shows his great storytelling and melody-making skills throughout so many gems he's written. His shows in our area include Asheville on Thursday, Johnson City Friday, and Charlotte on the 17th.

They live in nearby Fairview, and take part in the annual "Swannanoa Solstice" tradition in Asheville every year around this time. This year, it's Sunday the 21st, with Robin Bullock, Sheila Kay Adams, EJ Jones, and others. Join Martin Anderson for this Holiday session from Studio B on Thursday morning.

Live on Wednesday the 10th at 4pm: ROBIN & LINDA WILLIAMS

We've been reflecting more on our first few years on the air lately, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary this fall.  So it is extra special that we can announce the return of Robin & Linda to Studio B, who were a fixture of our sound from the beginning -- it's been too long since they've been here!
