Lead by songwriter M.C. Taylor, Hiss Golden Messenger has created a name for themselves primarily in the Americana folk genre but offer sounds pulled from a multitude of influences. The band’s first appearance on the show was back in 2014, which you can hear a bit of bellow.
Kris Delmhorst's most recent release, The Wild, allows us to dive into the artists’ eclectic taste and poetic songwriting. Watch her video for “All The Way Around” now.
Throughout her rising career, Nicki Bluhm has delved into an impressive lineup of collaborations which include Phil Lesh, Ryan Adams, and The Infamous Stringdusters. Her new album "To Rise You Gotta Fall" was done in Memphis, and it sounds like Memphis!
This will be Teddy Thompson’s third visit to Mountain Stage. Since his last in 2006, he has released five albums, including Family, a collaborative of songs put together by each member of his family, including his parents Linda and Richard Thompson.
Based out of Beckley, WV, The Parachute Brigade have recently released The Gold EP, a collection of songs showcasing their expansive sound, their thoughtful songwriting and tight harmony.
