Big Possum Live: Wednesday July 24

July 17, 2019 // In-Studio, Interviews, News

Making their second live appearance on WRCT, the Big Possum Stringband will be performing live shortly after 11:00 a.m. on the July 24 episode of Whiskey Before Breakfast!

The Big Possum Stringband is a group rich in history and musical skill. Each musician is capable of playing in multiple styles. And they are the 2018 Traditional Band Champions at the Appalachian String Band Music Festival — aka Clifftop. As if that’s not enough, they have a new CD!

We are very fortunate to have such a swinging old-time band stop by! With their hot fiddle, banjo, and guitar playing — and their sense of humor, they took over the studio last year; we’re sure they’ll do it again this year.

Don’t miss the excitement: Wed., July 24, shortly after 11:00 a.m. on 88.3 FM, Pittsburgh, or streaming from this very website.


Lula Wiles, The Stapletons live: Wednesday July 17

July 15, 2019 // Interviews, News

Whiskey Before Breakfast is going to be hopping for sure on Wednesday, July 17.

  • At about 11:45 a.m., we are expecting Lula Wiles to stop by for a visit since they will be playing at Club Cafe at 8:00 p.m. that evening. Isa, Ellie, and Mali, the three members of the band, are excellent instrumentalists and singers — their three-part harmonies are killer. And we love the tight band feel their records have. Their most recent CD, What Will We Do? topped the folk charts for several months earlier this year.
  • Shortly after 1:00 p.m., Kate and Casey Stapleton will be stopping by to introduce their new CD to WRCT listeners. The Stapletons, based here in Pittsburgh, present a unique blend of harp, guitar, and ethereal vocal harmonies — a mixture of neo-Celtic, rock and folk. A very unusual and beautiful sound.

Don’t miss out! Tune in to 88.3 FM, Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or stream the show from this very website!
