We’re calling it the Pop-Up Music Club. It’s a kind of mobile performance adventure, where we hit the road to hear from working North Carolina musicians — up-close and in their element.</p><p>We’ll hear them play impromptu gigs on their home turf. We’ll hear the stories they tell in church, and at the bar. And we’ll hear how the culture of the places they call home shapes their music.</p> Sat, 08 Dec 2012 16:00:00 +0000 David Brower & David Schulman 5763 at http://wunc.org Pop-Up Music Club: Tshombe Selby Pop-Up Music Club: Tshombe Selby http://wunc.org/post/pop-music-club-tshombe-selby-0 <div class="wysiwyg-asset-audio-wrapper" contenteditable="false"><div class="wysiwyg-asset-audio" fid="3922" description="The first installment in the WUNC Pop-Up Music Club features Tshombe Selby from Manteo, NC." uri="public://201304/Selby_0.mp3" contenteditable="false"><div class="audio-player-wrapper"><div class="pi_assets-audio"> Sat, 08 Dec 2012 14:27:55 +0000 David Brower & David Schulman 14572 at http://wunc.org Pop-Up Music Club: Tshombe Selby
