Iconic Midwestern folk singer John Gorka returned to Mountain Stage in early February, with a brand new song that he introduced as his "love letter to Charleston." Here he performs "Give Us Back Our Water," from this week's premiere broadcast.
National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) acting chairman Joan Shigekawa announced today that West Virginia Public Broadcasting is one of 886 nonprofit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Art Works grant.
West Virginia Public Broadcasting is recommended for a $30,000 grant to support digitizing 30 years of Mountain Stage programs into a consistent and accessible format for all audiences.
Jesse Winchester was an unforgettable personality and his songs were instantly identifiable. He visited Mountain Stage ten times from 1986 through 2013. His talent, charm, and gentle charisma became more potent with each visit.
The recent tribute album, Quiet About It, put together by Mac McAnally, with Winchester covers from Jimmy Buffet, James Taylor, Elvis Costello, Allen Toussaint and seven more of the best singer songwriters you can name is a hint of the respect he has earned among peers and admirers.
