Mountain Stage

Sunday 2PM - 4PM

The Black Lillies' signature mix of roots rock and and Appalachian music has earned them a loyal following at festivals across the southeast and beyond. They can be heard on this week's broadcast of Mountain Stage, with their song "Gold and Roses."

Accompanied by his wife Amanda Shires on fiddle, Alabama-born singer-songwriter Jason Isbell performs "Traveling Alone," as heard on his acclaimed album "Southeastern."

Earlier in the year, Mountain Stage staffers each picked a single performance to be featured as bonus content on the "best of" USB drives that are given away as pledge premiums. Associate Producer Vasilia Scouras chose "Turn it Around" by Lucius.

We hope you can tune in this Sunday at 2 pm to hear the first ever episode of Mountain Stage to feature a guest host - our oldest and dearest friend, Americana icon and West Virginia native Tim O'Brien. Rodney Crowell is there, along with The Infamous Stringdusters, Elephant Revival, Tattletale Saints, and another band with deep West Virginia Roots, The Sea The Sea.

Thanks for listening!

Famous country singer Rodney Crowell has still got it. Known for his work with Emmylou Harris and as a solo artist,

  Crowell made a name for himself beginning with his 1988 album Diamonds & Dirt and the five number-one hits it spawned. At 63, Crowell is still recording and releasing new material. His latest album, Tarpaper Sky, maintains a traditional country style while working in bluesy influences. It is part of our special double header concert this week with Nickel Creek. 
 

 

A diverse collection of music, from rock to reggae, funk, gospel and even a band that just plays baseball songs. That's all part of this year's Windstream Party in the Park concert series in Rochester which sees some changes from last year.

Bluegrass trio Nickel Creek have reunited and are celebrating with the release of A Dotted Line, the group’s first in about nine years. In 2003, Nickel Creek won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album for roots rock album This Side.

Though the group took a brief hiatus in 2007, it didn’t stop them from playing. Each member has adopted a successful solo career, but have since come back together.Rodney Crowell will make up the second part of this special double header concert!
