    Todd Snider is great, I saw Hard Working Americans a few years back and had a blast.

    Big Something is an excellent North Carolina based band coming up sometime in the next hour or so, and there's a bunch of other great stuff in the lineup (a lot of funk, jazz, and bluegrass), John Cleary is on now.


    I also highly recommend:
    Nth Power (really good funk band doing a Nirvana set should yield solid results)
    The New Mastersounds
    Dumpstaphunk
    Dopapod
    Lettuce
    John Medeski
    But really there are too many to list (Greensky Bluegrass and Infamous Stringdusters are also strong). Just thought this might be something fun that would interest some of the folks on this board, and for a good cause!


    Donate (and see the full lineup/schedule) here:

    You sound like an Asheville hippie. I like it.

    Great stuff! One of my best friends and roommate at Duke is a statistician and econometrics/stats professor at University of Chicago and others. He loved this too

    Thanks for the Todd Snider rec. Good stuff. Sounds a bit like John Prine with a hint of Arlo Guthrie.

    You can find his weekly shows at purplebuildinglive.com if interested — noon east coast time, every Sunday. Free to stream, although you can Venmo him a few bucks if you are so motivated.

    Love these lists and commentaries. Really, it’s a good feeling seeing so many DBR folks who listen to the same stuff as do I. Let me recommend highly a radio station that I’m confident Asheville area folks especially will be aware of. I think it’s close to unique in its Americana-eclecticism. It’s WNCW, a little station located in “beautiful downtown Spindale,” southeast of Asheville on the campus of the curiously but appropriately named Isothermal Community College. Here’s a link: https://www.wncw.org/

    One can stream it by clicking “Listen live.” If you don’t know the station, with its amazing variety, I suggest you click on Programming, then Playlists. I think you’ll be impressed. Grateful Dead and its universe (Widespread Panic, Phish, etc.) on Weds nights. Jazz on Sat morns. Frank [Zappa] on Friday, late Fri night.

    And — special alert — I’m pretty sure many posters on this thread would enjoy tonight’s (Friday) 6-9 pm program, the “Cosmic American Music Show,” named after Gram Parson’s phrase. Many Friday nights — actually most M-F, 9 am-6 pm, too, — you’ll hear Jason Isbell, Tom Waits, Tedeschi-Trucks, Lucinda Williams, Tyler Childers, Honeycutters/Platt, Son Volt, Hiss Golden Messenger, M. Ward, Avett Bros, dozens of others listed in this thread. Admittedly interspersed with some “classic country,” some of which I like just fine. Last set every Fri night is “drinkin’ an’ honkytonk songs.” Last song every Fri night is Uncle Tupelo instrumental, “Sandusky.”

    I’m a hermit, live in a smallish cabin literally in the middle of a forest on top of a western NC mountain. Naturally, being a hermit (or close enough) is an advantage in this difficult time. Music is a godsend for millions. And for the musical tastes of most of the posters on this thread, WNCW is your friend.

    My own list could run into the hundreds. I’ll spare you, and keep it to maybe 25.

    I start with a singer-songwriter, Maya de Vitry, former lead singer of The Stray Birds (saw them twice last few years at Grey Eagle in Asheville.) Two wonderful recent albums. Latest is “How to Break a Fall.” Just wonderful.

    Dylan (never ages, for me)
    Son Volt
    Neko Case
    Cowboy Junkies
    Lake Street Dive
    Western Centuries
    Sarah Jarosz
    Tom Waits
    Levon Helm/Band
    Corb Lund
    Hayes Carll
    Tyler Childers
    Sturgill Simpson
    Patsy Cline
    Brandi Carlile
    Nikki Lane
    Kacey Musgraves
    Bela Fleck
    Jerry Douglass
    Sam Bush
    John Cowan
    Lucinda Williams
    Courtney Barnett
    Robert Earl Keen
    James McMurtry

    And a couple more western NC guys, brilliant singer-songwriter lyricists — Chuck Brodsky, Aaron Burdett

    I could list dozens and dozens more.

    Thanks for your lists, this thread, DBR ... and WNCW.
    Another great list! I'm subscribed to the WNCW YouTube channel. Lots of good music.
    Man, if your Mom made you wear that color when you were a baby, and you're still wearing it, it's time to grow up!

    The Hold Steady - Craig Finn's band. Kind of a nerdy hipster Bruce Springsteen.
    Kacey M was on my list. I guess her sound is “pop,” but her lyrics are ... something else.

    Thanks for tip on Waxahatchee. Just heard “War” on WNCW.

    Big yes to The Hold Steady. Do you (or any poster) hear similarities in voices of Craig Finn and Patterson Hood (D-B Truckers)?

    Apropros of the link on the front page today, I really enjoyed "Still the King", a recent Bob Wills tribute album by Asleep at the Wheel and lots of guest stars. Here's a little taste:

    Love that Western/Texas Swing! I've been lucky enough to see Asleep at the Wheel and The Time Jumpers (Vince Gill, Ranger Doug). The narrator of that video, Amos Lee, was at the last Merlefest.

    Ditto regarding Todd Snider and WNCW - I love both. Last week I started listening to Jaime Wyat’s new record “ Neon Cross” and it is really good. Not a lot of live stuff up yet from the new record but here is official video from the title cut

    Also I don’t think I’ve seen Mary Gauthier mentioned and I am a big fan of her music. A few other ladies to mention are Kathleen Edwards, Holly Williams and Lydia Loveless

    Also you may know Elizabeth Cook as a DJ on SeriousXM Outlaw Country Or from numerous appearances on Letterman back in the Day but this is a really fun song that I have on several playlists:
