Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Super Yamba Band brought their six piece lineup to WNCW’s Studio B this summer and laid down a fantastic session. Here's the playback of Joe Kendrick’s interview with bandleader and drummer Daniel Yount, featuring music from their performance here, including their song “Blue Lights”, which will appear on Crowd Around the Mic, Volume 21.

We'll hear the rock/funk/soul vehicle Travers Brothership, led by twin brothers and Asheville natives Eric & Kyle Travers. They were here back in February to talk about and play tunes from their album “A Way to Survive.” And, we're going to reach way back in the vaults to hear Greg Brown playing live for us in 1996. One of the songs he performed was “BoomTown,” which was new at the time, and is still one of our favorites.

Ska, soul, and more converge with this high-energy sextet from New York, fronted by charismatic singer Nee Nee Rushie. Infectious tunes! They play the Asheville Music Hall on Friday night (supporting Dynamo.)

Learn more about the band!

It's great to see these two favorites of ours -- John Cowan the longtime voice of newgrass since his days with Newgrass Revival, and Darin & Brooke keeping North Carolina bluegrass vibrant and strong in the 21st Century -- playing together on stage, as they'll be doing at the Altamont Theatre in Asheville on Friday (after playing Floyd, VA Thursday). It's even greater to announce that they'll be live in Studio B with us and you!

DAVID CHILDERS
Kevin Bridges

Our favorite Mt. Holly lawyer-turned-musician has a new release that is seriously one of his best -- and we've been following him since at least 1999. On Run Skeleton Run he has a lot of help from Bob Crawford and Scott Avett of The Avett Brothers, and producer Don Dixon, in addition to his fellow regular bandmates. History and literature feature prominently through his great songs, and he'll perform live in Studio B in advance of shows in Charlotte on May 28th and June 8th, among others.
