Mountain Stage After Midnight- September 20 & 21



You know what’s hard to believe? Fall is coming. You know what’s easy to believe? Some of the best artists visit Mountain Stage right when the leaves start to change, as proven with this weekend’s pair of November 2012 archived performances on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.” Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Radio, “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. Each week we’ll hand-pick two of our favorite episodes and they’ll alternate order each night.

Tune your dials to West Virginia Public Radio this Saturday September 20 and Sunday September 21 for some great autumn performances on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

First you’ll hear a November 2012 performance at Huntington’s Keith-Albee Theatre during the 2012 Marshall Artist Series featuring the sounds of holler’n Americana group Spirit Family Reunion, Ohio rock-and-rollers Red Wanting Blue (who are performing at the Huntington Music & Arts festival this month), American singer-laughwriter Nellie McKay, indie folk group The Mountain Goats (whose frontman just released a new novel), Philadelphia-based pop-rock band Dr. Dog. See the playlist.

Moving away from Marshall-town towards Mountaineers-land, we’ll hear another November 2012 performance at the WVU Creative Arts Center featuring indie-pop duo A City on a Lake, Wisconsin singer-songwriter Jeffrey Foucalt, Mississippi-based troubadour Charlie Mars, roots rock group The Iguanas, and former Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty (who’s releasing a new record this week). See the playlist.
