Emmylou Harris, Tim O'Brien, Del McCoury, James King....these are just a few of the respected singers and songwriters who have covered this Nashville songwriter's great work over the years. His latest LP Don't Try to Fight It is yet another favorite of ours here at WNCW.

Matthew Conde

Ska, soul, and more converge with this high-energy sextet from New York, fronted by charismatic singer Nee Nee Rushie. Infectious tunes! They play the Asheville Music Hall on Friday night (supporting Dynamo.)

Learn more about the band!

We'll hear some top-shelf bluegrass from the Gibson Brothers, who were here this past February to talk about and play songs from their latest album "In the Ground" - Also,  we'll go back to June 2013 for a highly entertaining session with Spartanburg native Marshall Chapman, who came by to showcase tunes from her album “Blaze of Glory”, to talk about the rich musical heritage of her hometown, and to share some great stories from her adventurous and colorful life.  As we say here in the south, she's a "hoot"!
