Soup to Nuts Live!

The Soup to Nuts Live! Concert Series features performers from a wide variety of musical styles: Folk to Blues, Jazz to Rock, Bluegrass, Latin, Roots, Americana, Country and much more.  Just like its namesake program, Soup to Nuts (broadcast Saturday nights at 9pm on WHQR 91.3fm), this concert series is both energetic and eclectic.

One audience member at the March 6th Soup to Nuts Live performance by the Mac & Juice quartet commented online: “What an amazing performance! Had no idea of this band's depth and talent. I've seen 20+ Soup shows, and this was easily the finest. WHQR, you hit this one out of the park!” To that, we say, stay tuned. We've got more to come for Soup to Nuts Live! 

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. 

For more information on John Craigie, visit his website or check out his feature on RiffPub.com (recorded live in-studio at WHQR). 

The Artists

As individuals, the members of the Jewell Family are fixtures of the Wilmington musical community. It is a rare treat to have all five of them perform together for WHQR. Although they have performed as a group around North Carolina for years, their Wilmington appearances have been limited.

Soup to Nuts Live: Folk Trio Stray Local

Sep 11, 2013

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.

Courtesy the Artist

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.
