Sunday's Mountain Stage Live Performance is Free

Larry Groce, host and artistic director of Mountain Stage

Performance date: Sunday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m., Culture Center Theater, Charleston

It has been a long week for many West Virginians due to the water crisis, so this week's Mountain Stage recording will be free to the public. This Sunday’s show is at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The show begins at 7 p.m.

"We're starting 2014 over with a New Year's Party at Mountain Stage," said Mountain Stage host and artistic director Larry Groce. "January 19 is the new January 1! After the water disruption and the extreme weather, we all need a chance to re-boot and I think an evening of good music seems like a fine way to do it.

“Please be our guest at this Sunday’s show, and if your budget allows it, we hope you’ll use your ticket money to have dinner at your favorite restaurant before you come, and be generous to the staff who have been unable to work in the past week. Let’s celebrate our family, friends, community and everyone who pitched in to help keep things going during the recent crisis."

Sunday’s show features soul and R&B singer Bettye LaVette, Israeli superstar David Broza, family-based North Carolina quartet Matrimony, modern Irish singer/songwriter Declan O’Rourke and Noah Gundersen from Seattle, Wash. More information on the show can be found on the Mountain Stage website.

Anyone who already purchased a ticket may exchange it at the box office for a gift certificate or a ticket to an upcoming show.
