Saluda, NC's own Aaron Burdett has become one of our favorite regional singer/songwriters these last few years, and we welcome him back to Studio B to play some tunes from his fine new release "Breathing Underwater". He plays Asheville, Black Mountain, Saluda, & Hendersonville this month.
With a growling voice that grabs your attention and a dynamic band that keeps it, Rev. Peyton and his Big Damn Band are one of the most forceful, engaging bands in blues and Americana today. Peyton's got an impressive songwriting style and stage presence, not to mention collection of vintage guitars. He brings it all into Studio B this Wednesday.
For fifty years, Del McCoury's music has defined authenticity for hard core bluegrass fans. And yet, he and his band also have that knack for appealing to music fans that merely flirt with the genre of Del's former bandleader Bill Monroe.

Seth Walker is one of those rare artists who somehow straddles that line between country-folk and blues and R&B -- think Ray Charles or Delbert McClinton, two key influences of his. Though a native of NC, you'll hear how well his time spent in Nashville and Austin has rubbed off on him too. He wraps up August with an intimate show in Asheville, with Black Mountain's Kellin Watson opening.
