Live Friday May 1st at 2pm: MANDOLIN ORANGE

Apr 23, 2015

North Carolina's Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz blend beautiful harmonies, fiddle, mandolin, and acoustic guitar for a sound that is at once soft and powerful, simple and full of depth. They are excited about their  brand new release Such Jubilee, and so are we. Their May 1st Asheville show kicks off a spring tour that covers a heck of a lot of ground: roughly 34 gigs in 25 states over two months. They also play Charlotte on Sunday May 3rd.

Live Thursday April 30th at 12pm: ELEPHANT REVIVAL

Apr 23, 2015

This folk/americana band from Nederland, Colorado has been a favorite at festivals and concerts across the country these past couple years. Tune in for their first visit to WNCW. They play Asheville Thursday and Charlotte on Friday.

Live Thursday April 23rd at 3pm: DAMON FOWLER

Apr 20, 2015

After touring for a while with the band Southern Hospitality (with J.P. Soars and Victor Wainwright), Damon Fowler has his third solo album out on the blues-based Blind Pig Records, Sounds of Home. Home for him is Tampa, Florida, and he's on the road this week for a Thursday show at Fairview Tavern in Asheville, and the Happy Shak Music Hall in Columbus on Friday evening. Catch Damon's blend of roots rock, blues, and sacred steel here on Thursday afternoon.

Friday April 17th at 2pm: THE HONEYCUTTERS

Apr 11, 2015

Asheville's Appalachian honkytonk band The Honeycutters returns to Studio B, just in time for their Friday night CD Release Show of Me Oh My in their hometown (the album is officially released on 4/21.) Singer/songwriter/guitarist Amanda Anne Platt is joined by Tal Taylor on mandolin, Matt Smith on guitars, Rick Cooper on bass, and Josh Milligan on drums.

Wednesday April 15th at 3pm: CARAVAN OF THIEVES

Apr 11, 2015

Caravan of Thieves returns to Studio B, this time on a tour in support of their fun new album Kiss Kiss, their fourth one. If you can imagine a band inspired by Tin Pan Alley songwriters, the class of Duke Ellington, and the flair of Django Reinhardt, with maybe a Middle Eastern touch, you have a sense of  what Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni and the rest of the Caravan do. They play Asheville Wednesday and Charlotte Thursday.
