ANNE MCCUE Live Thursday, June 15th at 3pm

Jun 10, 2017

When you think of cities that foster great blues performers, Sydney, Melbourne, & Ho Chi Minh City might not be at the top of your list. But that's where acclaimed singer/guitarist Anne McCue built her foundation for making great music, and now that she's been living in Nashville and elsewhere in the U.S. for a number of years, we get to see her fairly regularly. Lucinda Williams, Dave Alvin, & David Olney are among the favorites of ours that sing her praises. She returns to Studio B before playing an early evening set at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall.

THE FRETLESS Live Thursday, June 15th at 11am

Jun 10, 2017

Three violinists and a cellist comprise this wonderful quartet that blends Celtic, folk, and chamber music seamlessly (and fretlessly.) They recently won Canada's JUNO Award for Best Instrumental Album, and we are so happy to welcome them back to WNCW's Studio B for their second visit. They play West Asheville on Thursday and Hickory on Friday.

AMANDA ANNE PLATT & THE HONEYCUTTERS
Susannah Elliott

The talented songwriter Amanda Platt is back with a new collection of songs with her band. It's Matt Smith on pedal steel and Stratocaster, Rick Cooper on bass, Josh Milligan on drums and harmony vocals, and Evan Martin on keys and Telecaster. They have not one but TWO shows at The Grey Eagle in Asheville to celebrate their self-titled release, Friday and Saturday.

The fluid, dynamic guitar work and thoughtful songwriting of Willy Porter is definitely something any music fan should seek out. Willy also uses his music to support the fight against domestic abuse, and a group that unites kids from the Middle East and U.S.,  "Kids4Peace". He's been at the station a few times over the years, and this time he'll have with him his singing partner Carmen Nickerson.

LILLIE MAE Live Friday, June 2nd at 11am

May 31, 2017

We love discovering exciting and talented new acts here, and one of the most recent ones is one Jack White and Third Man Records have as well, the captivating singer/songwriter/violinist/guitarist Lillie Mae. She's on tour (including some dates with Pokey LaFarge) in support of her terrific new album Forever And Then Some, and plays Charlotte on Friday, and Asheville on June 25th.
