the 14th Annual Acoustic Alaska Guitar Camp is co-sponosred by KNBA. The Instructor Concert is held on Wednesday, August 31st, 2016.  This year's camp instructors include Italian-born flatpicker Beppe Gambetta, fingerstyle champion Chris Proctor, Scottish-born singer/songwriter Jill Jackson, Uke sensation Victoria Vox, swing maestra Cyd Smith and Czech-born mandolinist Radim Zenkl. Other performing artists include Canadian Roots dobro artist Doug Cox and Steve Baughmanon Clawhammer Guitar and Banjo.

Swing 49, the Alaskan band that tackles the Gypsy Jazz genre, swung by KNBA Friday August 26th to chat about their new Album 'Devil's Club Blues' and share some live music!  Jackie Shafer, Tovi Newman, Forrest Wilson and Logan Bean have a crisp, balanced sound that very comfortably and respectably lives in the Gypsy Jazz genre while totally adding their own Alaskan flavor.

    

Alaskan artists return home. 20 years ago, this actually didn't happen as much as you think it would. Nellie Clay found her music while living in Moose Pass, Talkeetna and Anchorage. Last year she completed her 2nd full studio album and moved to Nashville.  But, you can't take the Alaskan out of this singer/songwriter. Nellie came home in August and has brought the talented Oklahoma singer John Calvin Abney with her.  Together they've infused their Red Dirt music roots with the tales only Alaskan's can tell.   

The TapRoot and Ladybird booking present PDX Fest: featuring the music of northwest artists Emma Hill & Bryan DastePretty Gritty, and Small Souls.

Alaskan's love a traveling musician. The artist who knows how to fit right in as they step into small bars, local campfires or that extra seat for a  road-trip North and South.  Tim Easton has been coming to Alaska for over 15 years and he always meets Alaskan's the organic way, with his feet on the ground. Tim wandered into the KNBA Studio's on Thursday August 11, 2016 to chat with Loren Dixon about travels, Salmonfes and his new Album "American Fork"

Hailing from Fort Collins, Colorado Wasteland Hop has toured through our state many times, notably as it brings  front man Mickey Kenny back home to Alaska! The band shares thoughtful lyrics delivered with a Rap/Hip Hop energy and style as the band provides a soundscape created by electric fiddling, acoustic and electric guitars, keys and percussion all played live.

The Good Time Travelers first came to Alaska in 2015 to play at SalmonFest. The stayed awhile and played in several communities all who said "You gotta come back!". So, they did. Pete Kartsounes and Michael Kirkpatrick have a good time wherever they go and the audience is never left out. You can catch up with the guys by checking out their website and visiting their shows when they're near you.
