Episode 208: Western North Carolina has a long history in roots music, but Amanda Anne Platt and the Honeycutters have been one of the defining sounds of the scene for the last decade or more, a no-frills, highly musical country band fronted by an exceptional singer and songwriter. On my recent trip to Asheville, I caught a Honeycutters show and then sat down with Amanda at her century-old home in Black Mountain, NC to talk about her guitar-building days, the evolution of her band and the new double album The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea. Also, part two of my visit with Asheville folk singer Valorie Miller.
