Backstage and On Stage at Mountain Stage in Grand Marais

This weekend you can hear the second of the two episodes that Mountain Stage recorded on the road in Grand Marais, Minnesota this fall. Iconic folk singer Tom Paxton closes the show, and Lori McKenna shows why she’s one of the most respected and in-demand singer-songwriters working today. Matraca Berg plays a few of the hits she’s written for others, along with the songs only she sings best. Andrew Walesch recalls classic jazz and lounge vocals. Drew Kennedy makes his first Mountain Stage appearance, and you’ll hear from Grammy-winning songwriter Jon Vezner, along with cellist Jeff Gilkinson.

Listen Sunday at 2 pm on West Virginia Public Radio, or on one of 130 stations around America.
