One of our favorite singer/songwriters, Chuck Brodsky, plays songs from his new album “Them and Us.” We'll also catch a 2006 session with the ragtime/hillbilly swing outfit the Wiyos, and we'll reach way back in the vaults to listen to bluesman John Hammond playing live for us in 1998.

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!

These four local greats are putting together an evening of songs for and about mama at Isis in West Asheville  on Mother's Day (6pm & 8pm). Tell mom to tune in!

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.
