As if he hasn't been busy enough touring with Robert Plant & Band of Joy, he's also touring in support of his own new release, "Long Ride Home." In his own words: "It is country music how i remember it - with some of the players that made the very music that was both lifting & breaking my heart as a kid - what i find is the country music industry has changed, but country & working people have not changed so much- they still love country music
One of our favorite voices to have discovered these last few years, Ryan Montbleau brings his band back to Studio B before shows in Asheville and Charlotte. Hopefully we'll hear songs from his forthcoming release recorded in New Orleans, with help from George Porter, Jr., Ivan Neville, & Anders Osborne. Not a bad studio band!
Blending old-time, bluegrass, & blues with a contemporary songwriter's touch, The Steel Wheels sing and play with a passion rarely matched by others. One of Americana music's best quartets returns to Studio B for a lively winter session as they prepare for a busy spring & summer schedule of festivals around the country.
