This week’s Special Archive Edition of Mountain Stage comes from the 2011 Celtic Connections Festival where Mountain Stage welcomed Mavis Staples, Dougie MacLean, Joy Kills Sorrow, and Mollie O’Brien & Rich Moore. Throughout the show, you’ll hear our special guest Tim O’Brien, who sat in with several guests.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and soul/gospel legend Mavis Staples has made three appearances on Mountain Stages since 2004. For this 2011 performance in Scotland, Staples brought her band and songs from “You Are Not Alone,” the Jeff Tweedy produced album released on ANTI records in 2010. Staples’ performance of the title track is our Song of the Week.
