Lula Wiles, The Stapletons live: Wednesday July 17

July 15, 2019

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!

Current Pennsylvania Fiddle Champ on WRCT 1:15pm Wed. July 3

July 2, 2019

Fiddler Marina Pendleton has influenced the Western PA bluegrass scene a lot in the one year she’s lived in Pittsburgh. She is the current PA state fiddle champion, quickly became a welcome face at area bluegrass jams and sessions, has been in the pit band for Front Porch Theatricals production of Bright Star, has played shows with numerous area musicians, and has made some recordings with area bands.

Alas, she’s moving to Houston for a new work assignment.

Fortunately for WRCT listeners, she invited Mandorichard to her farewell jam at which — in spite of losing his balance, falling, and wiping out some of the furniture — he managed to record a good bit of the session.

Tune in to Whiskey Before Breakfast, Wednesday, July 3, at about 1:15 p.m. to hear a fun bluegrass jam featuring fiddler Marina Pendleton and about a dozen Pittsburgh area musicians. Better yet, tune in for the whole show, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.!

Only on 88.3 FM, Pittsburgh, or streaming from this very website!
