TONY FURTADO Live Wednesday, May 17th at 3pm

May 12, 2017

Few people achieve the mastery of the slide guitar or the banjo like Tony Furtado has; fewer still have mastered both so well. Though based out of Portland, Oregon, he spends most of his time on the road, and we welcome him back to Studio B once again as he wraps up a Southeastern tour with a show at the Grey Eagle Wednesday night.

TIME SAWYER Live Wednesday, May 17th at 11am

May 12, 2017

Guitarist Sam Tayloe and banjo player Houston Norris share a love for the rural  home themes of Tom Sawyer, plus perhaps a desire to remain in the present with an eye towards the future; hence the name of their band that usually includes other good musicians from the Charlotte area. They bring their Americana/folk-rock sound to Studio B for the first time on Wednesday.

Learn more about Time Sawyer.

BECKY WARREN Live Wednesday, May 10th at 11am

May 10, 2017

Winner of 2014's Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at MerleFest, Becky Warren released a thematic album last year about a soldier's tour of duty in Iraq and subsequent reacclimation to life back in the U.S. with his girlfriend. In addition to having some seriously fun rockers, War Surplus weaves the songs together to tell quite a vivid story of coping with PTSD, and fighting to keep love alive. The Nashville musician pays us a visit Wednesday morning at the wrap-up of a long tour on the road.

Live Thursday, May 11th at 1pm: BILLY STRINGS

May 8, 2017

Singer/guitarist Billy Strings has an intensity and a fluidity in his picking that conjures up that of Tony Rice or other favorite bluegrass guitarists. But his influences extend beyond bluegrass, drawing passionate crowds with various interests wherever he plays. If you haven't discovered Billy or his great band yet, we can't wait to introduce them to you Thursday! They perform at the Lyrics For Literacy fundraiser in Greenville Thursday, and the Aiken Bluegrass Festival next weekend. 

Live Wednesday, May 10th at 3pm: AARON BURDETT

May 8, 2017

Saluda's favorite songwriter returns with his band, and a strong sounding new album, Refuge. Chasing dreams, getting by, finding refuge, remembering bygone days... It's easy to resonate with Aaron's reflections on life. Their CD release show is this Friday at the Isis Restaurant & Music Hall in West Asheville.
