Jerry Douglas and his Earls of Leicester will return to the Culture Center Theater in Charleston on Sunday, July 24, 2016, for West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s live-performance radio program Mountain Stage with Larry Groce. Also appearing are Lera Lynn, and the duo of Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 day of show, available now, on mountainstage.org, by phone at 877-987-6487, locally at Taylor Books in downtown Charleston and also at Mountain Stage's upcoming live shows. Day of show, doors open at 6:30pm, with a 7:00pm showtime.
Rattle & Roar, the latest album from the Earls of Leicester continues what they started with their self-titled debut album, which is putting a modern spin on the classic Flatt & Scruggs/Foggy Mountain Boys songbook. In 2014 the band won the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album.
Perhaps being known best as the dive bar singer in the second season of True Detective, Lera Lynn returns to Mountain Stage with her new album Resistor. The music video for the lead single, “Shape Shifter,” recently debuted on the Wall Street Journal’s blog Speakeasy.
Riding off of a 2016 Grammy Best Bluegrass Album nomination, veteran musicians Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley make their Mountain Stage debut with their forthcoming sophomore album The Country Blues.
This episode of Mountain Stage is scheduled for national distribution via NPR Music later this fall.
