This week’s episode of Mountain Stage revisits a recording from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in the Terrace Theater in Washington, D.C. last February.

Host Kathy Mattea welcomes legendary American folk music David Bromberg Quintet, Grammy Award winning bluegrass musician Peter Rowan, veteran roots music duo Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, jam rock super-group The High Hawks, and Nora Brown, who plays old-time traditional music accompanied by fiddler Stephanie Coleman.

Our Song of the Week is by acoustic music icon Peter Rowan, who has been coming to Mountain Stage since 1985 and, at age 80, still sounds amazing.

On this version of “From My Mountain (Calling You),” Rowan is accompanied on fiddle by The High Hawks’ Tim Carbone, who you’ll also hear on this week’s episode.
