Mountain Stage Live Show News: Sept. 24 & Oct. 22
Tony Award winning West Virginia Native Michael Cerveris (Fun Home, Assassins) will guest host during FestivALL Fall.
Grammy winning songwriter Dan Wilson added to September 24 line-up.
It may be the dog days of Summer but Mountain Stage is busy planning your live music experiences for the Fall. On Sunday, October 22 Mountain Stage will be a part of FestivALL Fall at the Culture Center Theater. The show’s host and co-founder Larry Groce is excited to welcome special guest-host, Tony Award winning Broadway star, musician and West Virginia native Michael Cerveris.
Cerveris has released several albums and has appeared twice on Mountain Stage with his band Loose Cattle. Widely known for his Broadway roles in Fun Home, The Assassins, The Who’s Tommy, Hedwig and the Angry Itch, and Sweeney Todd, Cerveris also enjoyed a prominent television role in the FOX series “Fringe.” Last year he organized “Take Me Home: a benefit concert for West Virginia” in New York City for victims of the West Virginia floods of 2016. He’ll be appearing in the upcoming Amazon Prime Video live-action comedy series “The Tick.”
With Cerveris at the host’s microphone on October 22, Mountain Stage is happy to welcome back the electro-pop duo Overcoats. This will mark their second appearance on Mountain Stage and their first since the release of their beloved debut “Young.” You can watch a couple of Overcoats songs over at our VuHaus channel.
Tickets for October 22 are available NOW to Mountain Stage Members for only $15. All other sales begin on Friday, July 28 at 10 a.m. Advance tickets are only $20 through August 31, $30 after August 31, and $35 on the day of show. Mountain Stage Members make a sustaining contribution at the level of their chosing, and are eligible for special thank-you gifts, discounts and early access to our live shows at the Culture Center.
In other news: We’ve added Grammy-award winning songwriter and producer Dan Wilson to the lineup on Sunday September 24. Wilson’s new record “Re-Covered” features re-imagined versions of songs he has written for, and with, other artists, including “Not Ready To Make Nice,” by The Dixie Chicks, “When The Stars Come Out” by Chris Stapleton, and “Someone Like You,” the monster hit by Adele. We last saw Wilson in 2014 in his native state of Minnesota for one of our Grand Marais shows. He performed some songs from his last solo album, “Love Without Fear,” and the Semisonic hit “Closing Time.” Mountain Stage Fun Fact: Wilson’s first appearance on Mountain Stage was in March, 1992 with his pre-Semisonic group Trip Shakespeare.
Also added to the bill on September 24 is Phoebe Hunt & the Gatherers. Hunt joined us once before as a member of the Belleville Outfit in 2010 and her new record is called “Shanti’s Shadow”. Also scheduled to appear is the Martin Sexton Trio and Son Little. Tickets are available now.
