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!

The (soon-to-be) husband and wife songwriting team of Jamie Rowen and Hannah Lomas began their partnership in 2012 shortly after graduating from UNC-Greensboro School of Music where they met studying classical guitar and voice, respectively. They have since developed their unique and electrifying sound, although not without hints of their southern roots. From Jamie playing a vintage acoustic Gibson, Telecaster and harmonica to Hannah's mandolin, keyboard, drum pad and even glockenspiel the pair likes to push the boundaries of genre and pave the way for a new indie folk sound. With the addition of Jessica Landes on the fiddle, the three piece delivers harmony-soaked grooves that are sure to keep you dancing. Their newest EP, Passenger, was released in the summer of 2018, which set the band on the road and included tour stops at Floyd Fest in VA, as well as a tour through the United Kingdom with highlight performances at Fire In The Mountain festival (Aberystwyth, Wales) and John Wesley's Chapel (Bristol, England). The duo is planning a international honeymoon tour for summer 2019 with performances in Spain, Portugal and the Stonehenge Solstice Festival in England.


A Wilmington resident since 1993, Lan began his tenure as on-air host for WHQR’s Front Street Blues in 2003, later adding operations and information technology to his duties, as well as production & logistical support for the long-running music series, Soup To Nuts Live!. He also provides images, video, and written content to WHQR.org.
