Mountain Stage

Sunday 2PM - 4PM

Well now you think of love as sitting on a mountain. Think of it as being a great big rock. Won't you think before you started to roll it down. Because once you start it, you can't make it stop.

Grammy Award-winning blues guitarist Robert Cray returns to the Mountain Stage with a take on Bill Withers' "The Same Love that Made Me Laugh" that's sure to stir our soul. 

A great deal has changed since 1964. But when rockabilly purveyor Bill Kirchen performs "The Times They Are A-Changin'" on Mountain Stage in 2017, it brings it back into focus.

A classic Southern soul band tinged with a fiery lead singer, St. Paul & the Broken Bones return to the Mountain Stage with a move'n and groove'n performance of "Flow with It."

Conductor, multi-instrumentalist and composer of more than 100 orchestral and chamber works, "the Renaissance man of American music" David Amram performs a stunning rendition of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World."

The hardest of hardcore troubadours, outlaw country's own Steve Earle returns on this week's brand new broadcast of Mountain Stage with a turn back of time to 1988's "Copperhead Road." 

This week's broadcast of Mountain Stage marks the return of two voices: the first in special guest host Joni Deutsch, and the second in classically eclectic pop maestro Kishi Bashi. 

In the fall of 2017, Bruce Cockburn will join Neil Young in being inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. But before he does, you'll be able to hear his brand new Mountain Stage performance on 200+ NPR stations. That includes the song "Lovers in a Dangerous Time," a quite-relevant piece of Top 40's pop culture that highlights the hopefulness in a hopeless world.

Pink Martini On Mountain Stage

Apr 19, 2017

Pink Martini returns to Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Clay Center in Charleston, W.Va. Originally founded in 1994 as a performance ensemble to liven up political fundraisers, the Oregon-based group has since grown into an international sensation with its cosmopolitan mix of classical, lounge and pop-jazz.
