This week’s encore episode of Mountain Stage is a compilation of our “Festival Favorites.” This special episode features performances by some of our favorite festival acts that have also graced the Mountain Stage over the years. You’ll hear performances by Phish, Joan Baez, Widespread Panic, Greensky Bluegrass and many more.

Our Song of the Week comes from none other than the four-decade long reigning titans of the jam-band scene, Phish. Guitarist Trey Anastasio, keyboardist Page McConnell, bassist Mike Gordon and drummer Jon Fishman round out the eclectic Vermont-born quartet. The band appeared on Mountain Stage Radio Show on March 22, 1992.

This week’s Song of the Week is a rarity in the Phish repertoire. “All Things Reconsidered” is Trey Anastasio’s variation on NPR’s All Things Considered theme, and this performance marks the only time it was ever performed live by the band on National Public Radio.

Tune in to this week’s special episode starting Friday, Feb. 16 on these public radio stations. Be sure you’re watching our podcast page for the newest episodes and sign up for email updates to help plan your trip to be a part of a live-show in Charleston, West Virginia and on the road!
