Capturing a banner year for the WNRN, our latest collection includes searing performances from up-and-coming artists like 2021 GRAMMY nominees Devon Gilfillian and Black Pumas, plus new music from veteran artists like the Wood Brothers, Hayes Carll, and guitarist Warren Haynes, who contributed a solo version of his Jerry Garcia tribute “Patchwork Quilt” during an exlcusive member concert at our studios in July of 2019.
In 2020, WNRN partnered with WXPN famed World Cafe program to spotlight Central Virginia artists for a national radio audience. Fittingly two performances from these sessions made the album, including a previously unreleased recording of the Hackensaw Boys performing at Charlottesville’s Paramount Theater as well as Saw Black at Richmond’s In Your Ear studios.
Our friends at In Your Ear studios also hosted WNRN members for memorable sessions with Calexico and Iron & Wine, Seratones, and a rare solo performance by John Butler. Additional mixing, mastering, and manufacturing was also done locally by Blue Sprocket in Harrisonburg, and the album artwork was created by Richmond artists Grace Manno and Dashiell Kirk.
The spirit of these sessions can be distilled into the album closer, an incendiary performance from young blues dynamo Christone “Kingfish” Ingram. 50+ members jammed into our tiny studio (oh those were the days!) for a fish fry and live session with a young artist making an ancient music feel brand new. We listen back to these sessions to remember what we’ve lost this year and to keep our minds and what will return again. Thanks as always for your support!
