Mountain Stage After Midnight: Bahamas, Calexico, Shovels & Rope


This weekend, Bahamas returns to over 150 NPR stations with his recent performance on the Mountain Stage. But do you know what’s better than one dose of Canadian folk pop-rock? Two doses of Canadian folk pop-rock. That’s where “Mountain Stage After Midnight” comes into play.

Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Broadcasting, “Mountain Stage After Midnight” takes the best episodes from the show’s 32 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 September 12 and Sunday September 13 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.
