Live Wednesday June 17th at 1pm: THE HIP ABDUCTION

Jun 11, 2015

This Afro-pop/alt-rock outfit from Tampa/St. Pete brings some of that glorious Florida sunshine up to our area with a Wednesday night show at New Mountain in Asheville, and a live session in Studio B that afternoon. Their West African kora and ngoni, reggae rhythms, catchy hooks, and warm, positive message made their 2013 album a Top 10 pick among more than a couple WNCW hosts.

Live Friday June 12th at 1pm: PHANTOM POP

Jun 4, 2015

This funk/jazz/fusion band from Brooklyn, NY has a string of shows in the region this week, including Carborro on the 11th, Charlotte on the 12th, and Boone on the 13th. Phantom Pop is Dave Lowenthal on electric bass, Josh Schusterman on drums, Haruka Yabuno on keyboard, Matt Giella on cornet, and Atsushi Ouchi on saxophone.

Live Thursday June 11th at 1pm: AARON BURDETT

Jun 4, 2015

Saluda, NC is the hometown of this gem of a singer/songwriter, who has recently completed his sixth full-length album Tinderbox, his second for Arden-based Organic Records. He's become a regular visitor to Studio B here, and returns with his current band for a few new tunes before their CD release show Friday night at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall in West Asheville.

Live Friday June 5th at 3pm: HAAS KOWERT TICE

Jun 1, 2015

Brittany Haas (fiddle), Paul Kowert (bass), and Jordan Tice (guitar) have played together off and on since they met in college(s) about eight years ago, and their unique sound is a prime example of a wonderful fusion that we at WNCW often refer to as "progressive acoustic" (think bluegrass or old-time instrumentation, but not exactly fitting either of those styles.) Haas has become known for her work with Crooked Still, Kowert with the Punch Brothers, and Tice with Tony Trischka and a variety of other greats.

Live Thursday June 4th at 3pm: TELLICO

Jun 1, 2015

Anya Hinkle, Stig Stiglets, Aaron Ballance, and Jed Willis combine experience from time spent in Dehlia Low, Town Mountain, and previous projects for this refreshingly original take on progressive bluegrass out of the Asheville area. Their official album release show for Relics and Roses is Friday night in West Asheville, and the rest of their summer is filled with shows in Jonesborough, Granite Falls, Cashiers, Bryson City, Brevard, and beyond.
