Exciting things are on tap for our fall schedule of live Mountain Stage events. There are five shows scheduled and we just made some exciting new additions that you can read about below.

We've added the "first family of banjo," Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn, to our October 26 live recording at the Culture Center Theater on the capitol grounds here in Charleston. Tickets are available online, at Taylor Books or by calling 800.594.TIXX(8499). Here's a recent write-up from Rolling Stone Country.

This event will be a part of FestivALL FALL, which runs October 24-26.

Also scheduled to appear on October 26 are Australian pop sensation Kate Miller-Heidke, power-house blues vocalist Janiva Magness and Irish duo Storyman, who have appeared twice on Mountain Stage as Guggenheim Grotto.

In other live-show news:

October 5 is SOLD OUT! We are excited to welcome Puss N Boots, a country-tinged trio featuring Sasha Dobson, Norah Jones and Catherine Popper, to our show in support of their debut album, "No Fools, No Fun," which is out now. As you might guess, advance tickets sold out VERY quickly. We also sold the remainder of our "Fall Access Ticket Packs," which included a ticket to each of the five shows.

Any available tickets will be put on sale on show day, starting at 5p.m., for $25 at the Culture Center Theater. Also appearing October 5 are Blake Mills, The Duhks, Jill Barber and Curtis McMurtry.
