Changes To Pipeline Permitting And Our Song Of The Week On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, both U.S. Senators for West Virginia want to reform permitting for pipelines, but agreement in the upper chamber of Congress is not always that easy.

Also in this show, the new fall season of Mountain Stage continues with Ireland’s progressive roots group We Banjo 3 making their second appearance on Mountain Stage this week. The Galway, Ireland, and Nashville-based quartet is made up of two sets of brothers and it incorporates banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and percussion beside strong choruses and melodic hooks, to create their buzz-worth live shows.

We listen to the band’s performance of “Garden Song,” which is included on their album Open The Road.
