Mountain Stage After Midnight: Kathy Mattea, Amos Lee, Great Lake Swimmers


There’s a reason why artists like Tim O’Brien, Kathy Mattea and Nellie McKay keep coming back to the Mountain Stage year after year. Between the good home cooking (provided by the lovely Judy Byrne) and the jam band togetherness of our finale song, each show feels like a musical family reunion of sorts.

This weekend, we invite you to join us (and potentially bring a nice casserole) to one of our live performance radio get-togethers known as 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.

Gather your friends and family Saturday June 13 and Sunday June 14 for a bit of rock, folk and Americana on Mountain Stage After Midnight.

We’ll start off with a September 2011 show recorded at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, MN (a sight of a site that we’ll be returning to this fall). This show features Tim O’Brien, Kathy Mattea, John Vezner, Sally Barris, Great Lake Swimmers and Cathie Ryan.

The second show comes from April 2011 and includes sets from Amos Lee, Nellie McKay, Wailin’ Jennys and Lauren Pritchard.
