For those who experienced it, Mountain Stage on April 28, 1991 was an unforgettable one to say the least. That day R.E.M., unquestionably one of the most popular bands at that time, emerged from a brief touring hiatus to perform on Mountain Stage in Charleston, WV.

Hailing from Galway, brothers Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley are among the most celebrated young musicians in Ireland today. Calling themselves We Banjo 3, the group traveled straight from their Mountain Stage performance to perform for President Obama and Congressional leaders at the White House.

Listen to Ra Ra Riot on Mountain Stage

Apr 12, 2016

Since they first met as students in Syracuse, New York, Ra Ra Riot has put a decade of experience performing under its collective belt. They draw influence from the experimental side classic rock, like The Police and Talking Heads, but also feature a small string section, which sometimes leads to their music being called "chamber pop." Here they perform "Water," from this week's all new broadcast of Mountain Stage, which also includes sets from Walter Martin, I Draw Slow, Overcoats, and West Virginia's own indie rock sensation Ona.

Listen to Mavis Staples on Mountain Stage

Apr 7, 2016

This's week's  broadcast of Mountain Stage is a special one, featuring live performances by this year's Grammy nominees and winners - including this song by iconic R&B singer Mavis Staples, "You Are Not Alone." You'll also hear sets from  rising stars Chris Stapleton and  Jason Isbell, along with Rhiannon Giddens, Wilco, Buddy Guy, The SteelDrivers and much more.

Since their formation as an alt-country influenced group in the mid 90's, Chicago-based band Wilco have evolved into the de facto standard bearers for experimental and indie rock. They close their Mountain Stage set this week with a cover of the late David Bowie's masterpiece "Space Oddity."

Although he's hosted over 850 episodes, it's been a long time since Mountain Stage host Larry Groce has performed a set of his own on the show. But he does this week, with songs from his first album in over two decades, Live Forever.
