Three Reasons to Get ALL ACCESS from Mountain Stage tonight

Larry Groce Bobblehead

UPDATE: ALL ACCESS tickets have sold out. If you haven’t purchased a ticket or reserved a seat but would like to participate in cocktail hour and the silent auction, a suggested donation of $50 is requested. If you can’t attend and would like to make a donation, simply click here.

Mountain Stage is hosting “ALL ACCESS,” a fundraiser to benefit the Mountain Stage Digital Archive Project. Tickets are still available, but seating is limited.

Money raised will go towards digitizing, indexing and building a web-portal where the world will be able to hear all 800+ episodes of Mountain Stage. Everyone who attends is helping build the digital archive of over 2,000 hours of unique, exciting live performances. 

But, here are three additional reasons to be there:

1. Limited Edition Larry Groce Bobblehead

ALL ACCESS attendees will get the first chance to purchase the highly anticipated Larry Groce bobble head. We have extremely limited quantities, they’re all hand-numbered and Larry has signed each one.

2. The Mountain Stage Ale

You can be one of the first to try our namesake brew from our friends at the Charleston Brewing Company. A blend of citra and mosaic hops, this crisp refreshment is the perfect compliment to some live music, which will be provided at ALL ACCESS by long-time Mountain Stage pianist Bob Thompson and our very special guest, Tim O’Brien.

3. Silent Auction With One-of-a-Kind Memorabilia

There will be a silent auction with one-of-a-kind memorabilia from some of our long-time friends, including R.E.M., Billy Bragg, Kathy Mattea, Brett Dennen, Del McCoury, Ani DiFranco, The Indigo Girls, Nellie McKay and more. Other items include a  house-concert with Larry Groce and a free recording session at the home studio of Production Manager Paul Flaherty.

Still need convincing? How about the elegant Italian buffet provided by Cafe Cimino Country Inn, the renowned dining and bed & breakfast destination in beautiful Sutton, WV? You’ll be able to enjoy one of Charleston’s most beautiful views from the Sunrise Mansion, now the offices of Farmer, Cline & Campbell PLLC
