Four hours of Americana, roots rock and so much more with an emphasis on performers from North Carolina . . . Ocracoke Island's Molasses Creek, Wilmington's Bag of Toys, the Triangle's Red Clay Ramblers, Asheville's Underhill Rose . . . we travel the mountains to the coast to present the state's best musicians.

There were many passions — baseball, public policy — that Jake Ybarra turned his attention to, but he always returned to music. Now, the South Carolinian has released his first full-length album, Something in the Water.
