Listen: Kishi Bashi on Mountain Stage


Classically-influenced eclectic pop maestro Kishi Bashi locally sourced a quartet of Appalachia-based string players for his performance on Mountain Stage, which you can hear on this week’s encore broadcast with guest-host Joni Deutsch.

Our Song of the Week comes from their set, the tune “Can’t Let Go, Juno,” from Kishi Bashi’s 2016 album Sonderlust.

You can hear the entire performance from Kishi Bashi, as well as sets by Southern soul masters the Marcus King Band, reigning king of the honky-tonk heroes Tyler Childers, indie-rocker Tristen and singer-songwriter Caroline Spence, when special guest-host, and recent Gracie recipient, Joni Deutsch navigates another week of live performance radio.
