This week’s encore broadcast features acclaimed vocalist and contemporary jazz musician Lizz Wright, along with Mountain Stage alumni Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express, and Glen Phillips. Plus, you’ll hear from New York City’s Bailen and New Zealand indie rockers The Beths as they make their Mountain Stage debut.

Our Song of the Week is “Willie Mays Is Up At Bat,” which comes from Chuck Prophet’s undeniably catchy 2012 album Temple Beautiful.

This performance also marked Prophet’s tenth appearance on the show. To celebrate this momentous occasion, like all of our “tenth timers,” Prophet was awarded an official Mountain Stage jacket with “Chuck” stitched across the front pocket.

Tune in to this week’s episode starting Friday, Jan. 12 on these public radio stations.
