Update at of 12pm 10/08:
Vinny Raniolo will no longer be joining Frank Vignola this Sunday. Frank will perform as planned.

Sunday’s Mountain Stage taping at the Culture Center Theater is sold out at 50% capacity, but you can watch the live stream from anywhere starting at 7p.m. EST at MountainStage.org and LiveSessions.NPR.org. There is a “pay what you wish” option via Eventbrite for those who wish to support the show.

It’s going to be an evening full of super-pickers as we welcome back Tommy Emmanuel, who is performing alongside dobro master Rob Ickes and monster-guitarist Trey Hensley, who will also have a duo set during the show. Elsewhere we have UK roots blues guitarist Jack Broadbent, who has most recently been out on the road opening spots for Little Feat, one of his musical idols. Nashville-based singer and songwriter Lera Lynn will bring songs from her latest, On My Own (Deluxe). The duo of Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo are no strangers to touring with Tommy Emmanuel, and they do jazz, blues, classical, swing and everything in between, and will make their second appearance as a duo on the show.

Just point your browser to MountainStage.org on Sunday and scroll down until you see the PLAY button.
