Mountain Stage After Midnight: Bela Fleck, Abigail Washburn, Todd Burge


Between the two of them, Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have appeared on Mountain Stage over 15 times in the last twenty years. Until the First Family of the Banjo make their next appearance on the show (get to writing, Bela/Abby!), we’ll go ahead and listen back to their past pick’n tunes on Mountain Stage After Midnight.

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 31 year history and shares their memories and songs with our late-night listeners.

Tune in this Saturday July 4 and Sunday July 5 for some great tunes on Mountain Stage After Midnight.

We’ll hear a March 2006 show featuring Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, Lynn Miles, Gus Black, Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca and Teddy Thompson.
