Blitzen Trapper, Guster Announced for Mountain Stage

The 33rd season of Mountain Stage will begin on Sunday January 17 at the WVU Creative Arts Center in Morgantown, WV. As guests of WVU Arts & Entertainment, host Larry Groce will welcome indie rockers Blitzen Trapper, Nashville based singer Ruby Amanfu and Austin-based seven piece Wild Child. Tickets for the event will be available at 10am Monday, November 16. Visit our Live Show Schedule for details.

The show returns to its home base, The Culture Center Theater on the State Capitol Grounds, on Sunday January 24 to welcome back beloved pop-rockers Guster for the second time. The band’s latest album “Evermotion” was produced by Shins keyboardist/Black Keys bassist Richard Swift, who has also produced recordings with Foxygen and Damien Jurardo. Also scheduled to appear are The Westies, a group formed by Michael McDermott and Heather Horton, whose album “West Side Stories,” is a concept record about  the real life Westies, “a ruthless gang of Irish mob punks that ruled Hell’s Kitchen in the 60’s and 70′s”.

Tickets for January 24 go on sale Friday November 13 at noon, via, by phone at 877.987.6487 or locally at Taylor Books in Downtown Charleston. More info on our Live Show Schedule.
