This week’s broadcast reflects on some of our favorite performers who appeared on Mountain Stage in recent years during FestivALL Charleston, the city-wide arts celebration that helps our hometown become a work of art throughout the year, including their summer and fall festivals.
For this retrospective our host, Larry Groce (a co-founder of FestivALL), chose some of the best performances in recent years, including Todd Snider, Lucius, Alsarah & the Nubatones, and a couple West Virginia artists, William Matheny and John R. Miller, to name a few. The show culminates with an outstanding set from The Wood Brothers, whose track “Can’t Look Away” is our Song of the Week.
