Jun 8, 2018

Based out of Brevard, bluegrass band Carolina Blue formed in 2007. They are Bobby Powell on guitar and vocals, Tim Jones on mandolin and vocals, Reese Combs on upright bass and vocals, James McDowell on banjo and vocals and Aynsley Porchak on fiddle. We are pleased to welcome them to Studio B for a live session during "Goin' Across the Mountain". They have various dates in Brevard, Valdese, and elsewhere, including Marion's Red White & Bluegrass Festival in July.

Live Thursday, June 14th at 3pm: Cha Wa

Jun 8, 2018

New Orleans brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian outfit Cha Wa radiates the fiery energy of the best features of the city’s street culture. They play Boone Thursday night, and Johnson City on Friday.

This trio of regional musicians promises to create a memorable, unique blend of traditional Japanese and Appalachian music! Originally from Osaka, Japan but a Swannanoa resident for many years, Akira Satake fell in love with the banjo at a young age, and is a master shamisen player (and a master ceramicist as well.)  We know Anya Hinkle's great work fronting Tellico and Dehlia Low, and are happy to welcome her for a number of Studio B sessions this year.
