Mountain Stage loves to travel. In just a few weeks, we’ll be hitting the road for shows at Davis & Elkins College, Abingdon’s Barter Theatre and Grand Marais’ North House Folk School. But before we do, let’s get in the ramblin’ spirit with some good ol’ archived trips.
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.
If you’re a fan of live performance radio (and, let’s face it, who isn’t?), stay up late Saturday July 25 and Sunday July 26 for some spectacular sets on Mountain Stage After Midnight.
First up is a September 2006 show at the Paramount Theater in Bristol, Tennessee. We’ll hear from Darrell Scott, Ollabelle, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Roni Stoneman and Reagan Boggs.
We’ll also talk a walk down memory lane with a May 2007 show at New York City’s Town Hall with special appearances from Joan Osborne, David Bromberg & Angel Band, Nellie McKay, Toby Lightman and The Roches.
