LILLIE MAE Live Friday, June 2nd at 11am

May 31, 2017

We love discovering exciting and talented new acts here, and one of the most recent ones is one Jack White and Third Man Records have as well, the captivating singer/songwriter/violinist/guitarist Lillie Mae. She's on tour (including some dates with Pokey LaFarge) in support of her terrific new album Forever And Then Some, and plays Charlotte on Friday, and Asheville on June 25th.

It's great to see these two favorites of ours -- John Cowan the longtime voice of newgrass since his days with Newgrass Revival, and Darin & Brooke keeping North Carolina bluegrass vibrant and strong in the 21st Century -- playing together on stage, as they'll be doing at the Altamont Theatre in Asheville on Friday (after playing Floyd, VA Thursday). It's even greater to announce that they'll be live in Studio B with us and you! 

DAVID CHILDERS Live Thursday, May 25th at 1pm

DAVID CHILDERS
Kevin Bridges

Our favorite Mt. Holly lawyer-turned-musician has a new release that is seriously one of his best -- and we've been following him since at least 1999. On Run Skeleton Run he has a lot of help from Bob Crawford and Scott Avett of The Avett Brothers, and producer Don Dixon, in addition to his fellow regular bandmates. History and literature feature prominently through his great songs, and he'll perform live in Studio B in advance of shows in Charlotte on May 28th and June 8th, among others.

MISS TESS & THE TALKBACKS
Gabrielle Savoy

It's a double-header in Studio B on Thursday afternoon as Miss Tess returns with her band for a set with Roland Dierauf. Blues and R&B, jazz and swing, honky-tonk and classic country: Miss Tess has her own personal crossroads of Americana. She's in the area for a triple-header of shows: Asheville Thursday, Hickory Friday, and Charlotte Saturday.

THE MOON & YOU Live Friday, May 19th at 11am

May 17, 2017
THE MOON & YOU
Michelle Sarkissian

Asheville's The Moon & You are Melissa Hyman on cello, and Ryan Furstenberg on guitar and banjo. Warm, silly, melodic, intelligent...these are a few words that help describe their sound. They're one of the acts set to play the inaugural Xpand Fest in Asheville on June 10th.
