This week’s encore broadcast of Mountain Stage features a highly danceable set from vocalist Victoria Victoria, who brought along jazz-giant Charlie Hunter on guitar, performing songs from her new album Wayside for the live audience in Charleston, West Virginia. We’ll also hear from indie-art folk rocker Cass McCombs, bassist and songwriter Scott Mulvahill, Toronto-based songwriter Julianna Riolino, and California’s Steady Holiday.

Victoria Victoria is the North Carolina based brainchild of singer-songwriter-producer Tori Elliott. Our Song of the Week is the plaintive “Hardware Store,” where the subject roams the isles of the hardware store in anticipation of seeing a lost love interest.

Tune in to this week’s episode starting Friday, Dec. 22 on these public radio stations. You can also listen to this episode via the Mountain Stage Podcast by searching for episode 1,006 or follow this link.
