We're so excited for Kentucky bluegrass rocker Chris Stapleton's return to the Mountain Stage! We'll announce more June 28 artists soon (make sure to sign-up for our e-newsletter for the complete list), but in the meantime, let's open up the archives to hear Stapleton's 2008 Mountain Stage debut on this week's "Mountain Stage After Midnight."
Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Broadcasting, "Mountain Stage After Midnight" takes the best episodes from the show's 31 year history and shares their memories and songs with our late-night listeners.
Take a mid-day nap and stay up late to hear some amazing live performance radio on Saturday April 4 and Sunday March 5 during "Mountain Stage After Midnight."
First up is a July 2008 show, recorded live in hip, historic Charleston, WV. The show featured Chris Stapleton's The SteelDrivers, seminal folk rocker Amos Lee, Philly soul singer Sharon Little and low-key roots player Peter Bradley Adams.
What's more, we'll hear an August 2008 show featuring Phish co-founder Mike Gordon, the Mountain Stage debut of jaw-dropping singer-songwriter Vienna Teng, alt-bluegrass supergroup Crooked Still, indie pop-rockers The Rescues and singer-fiddler Carrie Rodriguez.
