Tue, 08/20/2013 - 12:00pm -- WCVE

We’ll start off with two members of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Hall of Fame for their roles in the groundbreaking band, the Country Gentlemen, influential banjo man Eddie Adcock and legendary bassist Tom Gray. Eddie and Tom were joined by Eddie’s wife and musical partner of nearly forty years, Martha Adcock, to bring the memories home.

Wil Maring is a past Chris Austin songwriting winner at MerleFest. She is joined by past Winfield, Kansas-winning guitarist Robert Bowlin on guitar and fiddle for an enchanting evening in Studio A from  November of 2009.

In Your Ear Episode 16: The Kruger Brothers with Greg Trooper

Sun, 08/18/2013 - 12:00pm -- WCVE

He’s a son of the Jersey Shore and his winding musical road has run through Memphis, Greenwich Village, Austin and Nashville. His songs have been covered by luminaries including Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen and Vince Gill. His name is Greg Trooper. And two brothers from Switzerland who transitioned from the Alps to the Appalachians in search of the music that most resonated with them, the Kruger Brothers--along with Greg Trooper--are our featured artists for the next hour of In Your Ear.

In Your Ear Episode 15: The Stray Birds

Sat, 08/17/2013 - 12:00pm -- WCVE

Their name alone is compelling. When we think of a stray dog or cat, we picture a wayward, underfed, neglected creature that’s lost and looking for home or maybe never had one. But when you apply the adjective to a bird, the very symbol of freedom and purpose, you have a thought-provoking paradox that goes a long way in describing what musically motivates the Pennsylvania-based string trio, the Stray Birds.

In Your Ear Episode 14: Harris Brothers; Ron Thomason and Dry Branch Fire Squad; Joe Felisko and Eric Noden

Fri, 08/16/2013 - 12:00pm -- WCVE

From the blues, to bluegrass, and back--we’ll hear from North Carolina’s Harris Brothers with guest fiddler Nate Leath, beloved storyteller and bluegrass bandleader Ron Thomason and his Dry Branch Fire Squad, and two traveling bluesmen from the Windy City, Joe Felisko and Eric Noden--three short sets of great American music recorded before a live Richmond audience.

It's the Battle of the Century! (or is it?)

Man, talk about your headline grabbers, right? I mean, what kind of battle could I be talking about in regards to this week's World Music Show (8/17)? Will be a battle of sexes? A battle of the Network Stars (ok, I'm really dating myself there with that one)? Or will two World Music heavywieghts duke it out to win the right to be ear candy for you to carry through the rest of the weekend? Well, sort of.
