Beginning as an acoustic duo over a decade ago, Mac & Juice now travel the countryside as a quartet (acoustic and electric), playing original music described as “a broad-spectrum, rock & roll mosaic” with a vast stylistic range. Their latest release, Step Into The Light, is a mélange of genres that runs the gamut – from Stevie Wonder to Merle Haggard, with hook-laden songwriting and elements of bluegrass, jazz and Americana throughout. Every show is a surprise, and this episode of Soup To Nuts Live! will be no different.
Talented California folk musician John Craigie delivers performances filled with energy, original tunes, and humorous storytelling. Expect to laugh and be moved by Craigie's performance. Don't be surprised to be wrangled into a sing-along during his visit to WHQR.

Mixing musical chops with honest, creative songwriting and a powerful stage presence, L Shape Lot Duo delivers a dynamic sound. The highly creative duo delivers original songs with country, rock, bluegrass, and folk music roots. Their lively sound explores new ground, while still paying homage to their predecessors. Two men, two voices, two guitars, blended into a singular musical creation.
Folk trio Stray Local gave an invigorating performance to full room during the Soup to Nuts Live performance in WHQR's MC Erny Gallery on September 26th, 2013. Hosted by George Scheibner, Soup to Nuts Live brings a variety of musical styles and talents into the gallery to perform and record in front of a live audience.
Listen to two live clips from the performance:
Hear the full Stray Local performance broadcast this Friday and Saturday at 9 pm on WHQR 91.3 fm or stream live from WHQR.org.
Stray local is a dynamic, Wilmington based trio comprised of Jamie Rowen (guitar/fiddle), Hannah Lomas (mandolin/Vocals), and Nick Simon (percussion). With influences ranging from Southern old time to R&B, this trio sees no boundaries while collaborating and writing songs. Rowen and Lomas studied music together at UNCG, honing their classical chops while falling in love with old time fiddle music. The addition of Simon as a percussionist nicely rounds off this group's full, but subtle sound.
This trio packs a powerful sound with guitar, percussion, and vocals. They present jazz at its finest with the textures of Roger Davis' guitar, the tastefully creative and fun-to-watch Madafo (Lloyd Wilson) on percussion, and the powerful vocals of Nina Repeta- You may recognize Nina as Wilmington, NC’s former Azalea Queen 2000 or her role as Katie Holmes' sister on the TV show Dawson’s Creek; but her true calling is music.
