S3E2 Appalachian Vibes-Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, stories from Will Henson & Violet Bell

Appalachian Vibes

Good morning lovely people, This week on Appalachian Vibes I chat with the founder of Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, John Paul Miller, a half columbian guitarist whose mother first exposed him to the instrument as a small child by singing and playing to him on a classical guitar. Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band is a sexy funk band from Asheville, NC with 20 years in the industry. John Paul tells the tales of his years of traveling with the band and abroad. Bootyband.comWill Henson reads his short story non fiction piece, Cellphone.  A Bukowski-esque glimpse into the mind of one Appalachian writer and musician. Will Henson's song, Whiskey Jesus plays at the end of his piece. Find Will Henson on Facebook. I've shared the next story several times, mainly because it gives me chills every time I listen to the story of the Selkie from Violet Bell. The last story is a beautiful, heart breaking story of the Selkie, a creature of folklore from around the word.  The members of the Americana folk duo tell their rendition and share their recording, Back to the Sea.  Violetbell.netEveryone have a beautiful week,Amanda As always if you would like to nominate an artist, go to appalachianvibes.net

S2E7 Appalachian Vibes- Violet Bell, Annabelle's Curse & Amanda McCarthy

Appalachian Vibes

This week on Appalachian Vibes my guests are the Chapel Hill Americana duo Violet Bell, Bristol VA/TN alt Americana band Annabelle's Curse and the insanely talented soul artist, Rebekah Todd. Violet Bell consists of Lizzy Ross (guitar/vocals) and Omar Ruiz-Lopez (violin and cello). Their upcoming album, Back to the Sea, is a collection of stories about Selkies, not selfies, selkies. A selkie is a creature in Irish folklore. It is a seal who can take off its skin and becomes a woman. Kinda like a mermaid or a siren, but different. Lizzy tells an incredible story about a selkie and we all drift along with her voice until she starts singing when you remember you are not a character in her story. To learn more about Violet Bell -https://www.lizzy.netMy second guest was
