For working comedians, mean-spirited hecklers are part of the job. But what happens when someone gets angry enough to throw a beer? And, West Virginia poet laureate Marc Harshman had his own experience with an intimidating gig. We also hear some advice for people caring for aging relatives. You’ll hear these stories and more this week, Inside Appalachia.Continue Reading Take Me to More News
On Sunday, December 1 Mountain Stage with Larry Groce, the long-running live music program heard weekly on 240 NPR stations, will celebrate the show’s 36th Anniversary at the Culture Center Theater.
Anniversary shows are always special for us and this one is no different. Advance tickets sold out in 11 minutes when the public on-sale was opened Friday morning at 10a.m., thanks to increased interest in the scheduled return of Appalachian country music star Tyler Childers. The Kentucky songwriter will make his third appearance on Mountain Stage December 1st, along with West Virginia bluegrass royalty Johnny Staats and the Delivery Boys. More guests will be announced soon.
As you can imagine, there was a great deal of interest in this show, since Childers and his band have appeared twice on national television and sold out Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater in recent months. With only 460 seats in the Culture Center Theater, this will be one of the most intimate venues they’ll perform in, and there is far greater interest than there is capacity.
We are glad to have welcomed so many Mountain Stage Members on board and want you to know that there are more perks just around the corner. Our Members will be the first to access online sales for our next round of show announcements which will hit member inboxes on Friday, November 15. We’ve got more great stuff planned for the first shows of our 37th season.
Thank you to everyone who supports Mountain Stage, through ticket sales, membership or listening on the radio. Without you there’d be no Mountain Stage and we never forget that.
