Donna the Buffalo has been sending out good musical vibes since 1989, and this week on Studio B Rewind we'll catch them in a live session from 2013, when they had just released the album “Tonight, Tomorrow, and Yesterday.”  Also, Radney Foster in an interview and performance from November of last year, focusing on his album “For You To See The Stars”, and his book by the same name.

We'll hear Catie Curtis talk about philosophy and good works, and perform songs from all through her career in a session from 2010. We'll also cut a rug with Caleb Klauder and His Country Band with Reeb Willms, who were in Studio B in late 2016, a session that produced a stand-out track on our latest Crowd Around The Mic.

 

We'll check in with a 2006 Studio B session with Mark Johnson and Emory Lester, just before the release of the album “Acoustic Rising.” Mark has a very unique banjo style that has been dubbed “clawgrass” and Emory Lester is a master mandolin and guitar player. Also, we'll head up the mountain to Asheville for a 2003 live session on the road with the one-man jam band Keller Williams, who played tunes for us from his album “Laugh”,  including the WNCW classic, “Freeker by the Speaker.” Join Kim Clark this Friday evening and every Friday evening as she hosts Studio B Rewind on WNCW.

We'll listen to a couple of sessions that will be represented by tracks on our brand new Crowd Around The Mic Vol 21, and this show is a perfect example of the wide variety of music available on the two-cd compilation. We'll dive into the new wave techno sound of Lotus in Studio B this past January, and we'll sample some traditional Italian folk music by Mike Guggino and Barrett Smith in a session originally  broadcast from Isis Music Hall in Asheville.

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.
