Tickets have been sold out for more than a month to this Sunday’s live recording of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce featuring St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Mac McAnally, Chastity Brown, Sarah Siskind and The Wild Reeds.
The good news is that now you can join us from wherever you, no ticket required, thanks to our partners at VuHaus and the video production department here at West Virginia Public Broadcasting, as we record Mountain Stage episode #902. Of course, no one will stop you from making a contribution to say "Thanks"' for the live stream.
Just point your browser to MountainStage.org or VuHaus.com at 7pm EST and enjoy the show. We'll open with a performance by Sarah Siskind, whose songs have been recorded by Alison Krauss (the GRAMMY-nominated “Simple Love”) and Bon Iver (“Lovin’s For Fools”), among many others.
Next we will hear The Wild Reeds, fresh off an appearance at this year’s Newport Folk Festival. Built around the vocals of Kinsey Lee, Sharon Silva and Mackenzie Howe, The Wild Reeds are supporting their latest release for Dualtone records, “The World We Built.” The hour will end with the genre-spanning sounds of Minneapolis-based singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Chastity Brown, who we first met while hanging around at the Gun Flint Tavern in Grand Marais, MN. Her latest, "Silhouettes of Sirens" is out now on Red House Records.
The second hour of the program will begin with a set from Singer-Songwriter Hall of Fame member Mac McAnally, who is taking a break as the guitarist in Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band to appear on Mountain Stage for the third time. Mac’s latest release, “Southbound,” is due August 25 and is the first of his 14 albums to present all-original material in McAnally's newly arranged orchestral context.
After our pianist Bob Thompson’s featured song, we will welcome back St. Paul and The Broken Bones who have been a tour de force of modern soul influenced rock and R&B. Their latest, “Sea of Noise” was released last September. The band is just back from a European tour.
