Poet, performer, visual artist and rock-and-roll icon Patti Smith joins us on this week's  encore broadcast of Mountain Stage.

Here she performs "People Have The Power," the driving anthem co-written with her husband Fred "Sonic" Smith, a native of Lincoln County, W.Va. who was posthumously inducted into the WV Music Hall of Fame the evening prior to this performance.

On this day, 155 years ago, West Virginia was born and with it a rich history and culture that makes it its own kind of wild and wonderful. Today we want to take time to highlight a few musical talents who have called West Virginia home over the years.

This Sunday you can watch along live as Mountain Stage hosts a sold-out show at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, WV featuring Patti Smith & Family, Mollie O’Brien & Rich Moore, Van William, Robbie Fulks and a special tribute to Little Jimmy Dickens featuring Tim O’Brien, Charlie McCoy and Friends.
