Live Wednesday June 3rd at 3pm: PARKER MILLSAP

Jun 1, 2015

Oklahoma's Parker Millsap received a nomination last year from the Americana Music Association for Emerging Artist of the Year, as well as praise from NPR, American Songwriter, The Wall Street Journal, and elsewhere. He plays Asheville Wednesday night, and Charlotte on Thursday.

Live Friday May 29th at 3pm: WOODY PINES

May 21, 2015

You can tell Woody Pines likes to mine through old '78's whenever he knows there's a record store nearby. Like Pokey LaFarge, Old Crow Medicine Show, and other "retro"-sounding acts, he breathes new, vibrant life into those vintage sounds of Woody Guthrie, early Dylan, and all those great swing and juke-joint bands of yesteryear. He and his band return to his former home of Asheville Friday night, and they play Waynesville on Saturday. We love his new self-titled record on Muddy Roots Music.

"A jaw-dropping, crowd pleasing guitar virtuoso with a rich vocal style from Melbourne, Australia", says his website. Yup, that pretty much sums up Geoff. And we're so glad he's got his band the Souldiggers (Ted Pecchio on bass, Adam Goodhue on drums) with him for another smokin' blues set in Studio B before they head to Asheville.

Live Friday May 22nd at 11am: MIPSO

May 14, 2015

This Chapel Hill quartet brings their Appalachian-based Americana to Charlotte on the 17th, Knoxville on the 22nd, and Black Mountain on the 23rd (for Hot Rize's new "UpRizing" Festival with Leo Kottke and Town Mountain as well.) Oh, and Studio B on the 22nd, too.

Live Thursday May 21st at 1pm: ALLEN THOMPSON BAND

May 14, 2015

Raised on soul, southern country, and "Hee Haw" in Roanoke, VA, Allen Thompson forged his own rootsy Americana sound, now with his band based out of Nashville. They return to Studio B, and kick off the outdoor Rhythm & Brews Concert Series in downtown Hendersonville on Thursday.
