Listen: Charlie Hunter & Lucy Woodward on Mountain Stage

Jul 16, 2020

Travel complications led to a last-minute collaboration between guitarist Charlie Hunter and vocalist Lucy Woodward. The chemistry was so evident that the pair decided to do an album together, released in 2019, called "Music! Music! Music!"

Hunter and Woodward set out to record songs from a broad but "very specific time frame," Woodward says "1894 to 1987." Our Song of the Week, "Be My Husband," is an Andy Stroud composition most usually associated with Nina Simone. Percussionist Keita Ogaura rounds out the trio heard here.

You can hear this fiery set, along with performances by Molly Tuttle (who just announced a brand-new record of covers due in August 2020), John Paul White, Jeff Black and Charley Crockett (who also has new music out very soon), all on this week's encore episode of Mountain Stage, recorded at the Peoples Bank Theatre in Marietta, OH in July 2019.
