2016 was a big year for NPR Music and West Virginia Public Broadcasting's Mountain Stage. We celebrated 33 years of live performance radio, commemorated the 25th anniversary of R.E.M.’s legendary set, and listened to the voices of two new guest hosts

Spellbinding folk with a captivating voice. It would only make sense for such a performance by Aoife O'Donovan to be titled "Magic Hour," one of the many songs we'll preview on this week's Mountain Stage broadcast.

We'll also hear performances by Old Crow Medicine Show crooner Willie Watson, Grammy-nominated country songwriter Brandy Clark, Chicago indie rockers Frances Luke Accord, and acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter John Doyle.
