Mountain Stage After Midnight- August 23 & 24


What goes best with Doctor Who’s Season 8 premiere this weekend? A big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey live performance radio! Jump into our TARDIS  as we travel through the Mountain Stage archives to hear two great 2013 performances on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.” Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Radio, “Mountain Stage After Midnight” takes the best episodes from the show’s 31 year history and shares their memories and songs with our late-night listeners. Each week we’ll hand-pick two of our favorite episodes and they’ll alternate order each night.

Tune in for some great 2013 performances that will air Saturday August 23 and Sunday August 24 on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

First you’ll hear a January 2013 performance from London-by-way-of-Kansas singer Piney Gir, indie rocker Bahamas, alt-country troubadour Bonnie Prince Billy, surrealist folk group Camper Van Beethoven, and indie Tex-Mex collective Calexico. See the playlist.

Shovels & Rope made its first appearance on Mountain Stage in 2013. They’ll make their second appearance this year as part of Mountain Stage’s fall schedule.

Next a February 2013 performance featuring Americana singer-songwriter Bonnie Bishop, alt-country duo Shovels & Rope (who are coming back to Mountain Stage this fall), country-pop singer Kim Richey, Canandian chanteuse Kathleen Edwards, and West Virginia’s own Kathy Mattea. See the playlist.
