We've loved Shannon McNally's soulful blend of folk, country, blues and rock since her 2002 album Jukebox Sparrows. Last year's Black Irish featured strong collaborations with Rodney Crowell, and an eclectic roster of covers. She is currently on tour with a powerful new (to us) soul singer named Erin Costelo, and we can't wait to get to know her when they visit Studio B on their way to Charlotte for their double-bill at The Evening Muse. Erin's new album Down Below, the Status Quo is our "New Tunes at 2" feature on Tuesday.

This fun old-time band from Brevard features Tim Fisher on fiddle, Josh Carter on mandolin, Mallory Carter on washboard, Owen Grooms on banjo, and J.T. Linville on bass. They play the Grey Eagle in Asheville on Saturday night.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Matt Walsh seems to already know a little about "Life After Rock & Roll" (the name of his latest release) -- his duo The Low Counts had a prolific four years of "Blue Collar Rock & Roll" before his drummer and friend Austin Hicks died a year ago this month. With influences spanning blues, soul, country, and more, The High Point/Statesville musician has shows in our area that include Asheville this Thursday and Black Mountain on Saturday.

This indie-folk five-piece from L.A. has wonderful 3-part harmonies, and a great collection of songs on their album of this year The World We Built. The Wild Reeds head to the Grey Eagle in Asheville on Thursday the 17th, and the Evening Muse in Charlotte on Friday the 18th.
