Dawes, shown here in 2011, appear on this week's listeners' choice episode of Mountain Stage.

Our Listeners' Choice episodes of Mountain Stage continue this week with a classic show from 2011 featuring Dawes, Jason Isbell & 400 Unit, Blitzen Trapper, James McMurtry and Matthew Sweet.

Check out the playlist here and find out where you can listen on these public radio stations starting Friday.

In October 2011 California quartet Dawes were touring in support of their acclaimed album Nothing is Wrong. Our Song of the Week is a performance of the final track on that album, a creative and emotional high watermark for the band, “A Little Bit of Everything.”

In March the band released “I Will Run,” a previously unreleased song from the recording sessions for their 2018 album Passwords. All proceeds will benefit the North Shore Animal League America and the MusiCares Covid-19 Relief Fund.
