Soup to Nuts Live!
Well into its second decade, WHQR's SOUP TO NUTS LIVE! has become one of the Cape Fear region's favorite, live-listening experiences, featuring a wide array of musical genres on its stage. The M.C. Erny Gallery has hosted Bluegrass, Rockabilly, Celtic, Country, Blues, Latin, Jazz, Folk, Indie, Pop, and Americana performances. And along the way, we've welcomed talented, hard-working musicians from all walks of life.Our Gallery is an acoustic room that demands attention. Adapting your 'unplugged' performance to our space may require some patience, but the reward is a truly intimate, interactive experience for both artist and listener. STNL!'s recording process reflects its commitment to high quality, ongoing success, and the hard work of its technical staff. Each performance is engineered, multitracked, and edited into a one-hour program for broadcast on an upcoming date. In addition, we forward and cross-promote the live event (and the later broadcast) across our website, on-air, social media, and related platforms.If you would like to be considered for a future STNL! session in front of a live audience at WHQR, we'd like to hear from you. Send an email of interest to stnl@whqr.org and include links to your music, biography, website, videos, social media, club & tour dates, etc. We look forward to making contact with you soon. Thank you!

Soup to Nuts LIVE! Presents: Chris Frisina

Chris Frisina Music
Chris Frisina

Chris Frisina will be our next Soup to Nuts LIVE! guest Thursday, November 16th, in the MC Erny Gallery. The doors open at 6:30pm, and the show starts at 7:30pm.

Chris Frisina is a singer-songwriter from Olean, New York, located south of Buffalo along the Allegheny river. Chris happened upon Wilmington while on his travels and, for the most part, has stuck around since 2014. His music resonates a personal nostalgia for where he’s come from, what he’s seen, and where he’s been. He often finds himself compared to the likes of John Prine. While Chris finds this flattering, he’ll tell you he sounded like that long before he knew of Prine. Wilmington's Star News declares his new CD Fences as 'folk gold' and describes it as “..an excellent folk and country album, on which Frisina’s voice is at the heart of storyteller-driven material about scarred farm country, relationship-ending guilt, friends, and a soul split into pieces.” Still a nomad by nature, Chris plans on touring around the U.S for most of 2018, sleeping in the back of his pick-up truck, and singing songs for strangers.
