Listen: Ani DiFranco Has The Mountain Stage Song Of The Week From The Best Of 2021-Part Two

Ani DiFranco

This week’s episode looks back on more of our favorite performances from 2021, including sets from Ani DiFranco, Ruthie Foster, Tim O’Brien & Jan Fabricius, Curtis McMurtry, and Mick Flannery & Susan O’Neil.

For our Song of the Week, we’ve chosen Ani Difranco’s engaging performance of her song “Simultaneously,” which appears on her recent Righteous Babe release Revolutionary Love, recorded at The Clay Center here in our hometown of Charleston, W.Va.

Rounding out the special are sets from Ireland’s Mick Flannery & Susan O’Neil, and Austin based songwriter Curtis McMurtry.
