Sep 6, 2013

Tuesday is the release of our own Steep Canyon Rangers' new album Tell the Ones I Love, and we're celebrating with a live session from them in Studio B!  Working with Larry Campbell at Levon Helms' barn in Woodstock, working with Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, working on their Mountain Song Festival in Brevard this weekend that they host....we'll have lots to talk about. 

Live Wednesday the 11th at 4pm: TYLER RAMSEY

Sep 6, 2013

Asheville's great singer/songwriter/guitarist Tyler Ramsey has been working on another solo album, in and amongst his busy schedule as guitarist for Band of Horses.  We're excited to welcome him back to Studio B for a live session before shows in Charlotte and Asheville this weekend.

Wild Ponies is the band comprised of singer/songwriting duo Doug & Telisha Williams.  Formerly from the mountains of Virginia, they have recently moved to Nashville, and released a fine new collection of songs.   They play Charlotte Thursday night.  "Doug & Telisha Williams have the old-time, pre-70s country, mountain & honky-tonk road house music all blended together into their own whiskey - open the jar and have a pull." — Darrell Scott. 

Live Thursday the 5th at 3pm: WARREN HOOD BAND

Sep 3, 2013

Warren Hood was just in Studio B last May, as part of Hayes Carll's backing band.  His own trio has singer/pianist Emily Gimble and guitarist Willie Pipkin, and the spotlight's on them this time before heading to shows in Black Mountain Thursday, Spartanburg Friday, and Saluda Sunday.  Warren, the son of the late Champ Hood from Spartanburg and Austin's Uncle Walt's Band, also plays regularly with his band The Waybacks; he's one of the most dynamic, expressive fiddlers in Americana.   

Live Friday the 6th at 1pm: THE BAREFOOT MOVEMENT

Sep 3, 2013

The Barefoot Movement are a young acoustic group from Johnson City, with a sweet new release called Figures of the Year.  They kick off a busy September with a show in their hometown before a string of other gigs in our area including Hickory, Brevard, Greenville, Fairview and Knoxville. 

Live Friday the 6th at 3pm: GEOFF ACHISON

Sep 3, 2013

We are lucky that Australian blues guitar great Geoff Achison loves our area -- he's back again for a string of shows that includes Tryon, Knoxville, Saluda, and Asheville these next couple weeks.  Some of his shows will be solo, but he's bringing his band The Souldiggers -- including Randall Bramblett! -- into Studio B this time.  "Geoff is one of the finest blues guitarists I know with a completely individual style."  --Jorma Kaukonen
