Thursday, February 9th at 12PM: Onward, Soldiers

One of the most promising new releases we've heard so far this year is from Wilmington, NC band Onward, Soldiers.  It's a catchy blend of rock and Americana you can hear for yourself when they visit Studio B Thursday around Noon.

Friday, February 10th at 11AM: Solas

This Friday we are pleased to welcome one of the most played bands of traditional Irish music heard on WNCW -- or on just about any other station for that matter.  The 5-piece band Solas has evolved it's lineup over the years, consistently maintaining their adherence to tradition while branching out in contemporary directions.  They play Clover this Thursday and Asheville on Friday. 

Thursday, February 2nd at 3PM: Lydia Loveless

"An old soul in a 21 year-old’s body, Lydia Loveless sings about the kind of heartache usually reserved for someone working on her third marriage." - The Charleston Gazette.  Touring in support of her powerful release "Indestructible Machine", Loveless straddles somewhere between the country side of punk, and the punk side of country.
