Mountain Stage After Midnight- February 21 & 22


Mountain Stage is all you need when it comes to music discovery. Actually the hipster in us wants to shout, “We had Jason Isbell and The Milk Carton Kids on the show before they were cool!” but why shout when you can just listen to these archived sets 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 Saturday February 21 and Sunday February 22 for country-infused folk and rock-a-cana on this week’s “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

First up is a October 2011 show featuring folk rock group Dawes, Georgia power-popper Matthew Sweet, experimental country-folk group Blitzen Trapper, Americana legend James McMurtry and North Alabama rock outfit Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit.
