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.

This Sunday, February 12, point your browser to MountainStage.org at 7pm EST to watch a LIVE recording of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce via VuHaus.

Mountain Stage with Larry Groce welcomes The Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Mandolin Orange to Charleston, West Virginia on March 26.

Grab some snacks and a party hat! You're invited to the 33rd anniversary celebration of NPR Music and West Virginia Public Broadcasting's Mountain Stage.

Revered singers and songwriters Billy Bragg and Joe Henry perform on this week's broadcast of Mountain Stage, with songs that celebrate the wide-open romance of the American railroad. Here they perform the John Hartford classic "Gentle on My Mind," in a show that also features performances by Chris Smither, Robert Ellis, LAU, and Kaia Kater.

This week's Mountain Stage Song of the week features our own Bob Thompson, with his take on the classic American folk tune "Shenandoah," which was recorded live on the campus of James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. During the episode you'll also hear performances by The Steel Wheels, The Seldom Scene, The Honeycutters, and Jonatha Brooke.

Under the direction of dobro master Jerry Douglas, The Earls of Leicester perfectly conjure the sounds of bluegrass legends Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs — and in the process, have created one of music's great band-name puns. Recreating the spirit of bluegrass giants is serious business though, and it paid off when the group took home a 2015 Grammy for its efforts. The appear on this week's all new broadcast of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce, alongside Lera Lynn, Cheryl Wheeler, Rob Ikes & Trey Hensley, and Nora Jane Struthers.

This weekend, Mountain Stage listeners will hear a new voice on the show as we welcome a very special guest host: Joni Deutsch.

The show, which was recorded June 26 at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, West Virginia, will feature live performances by dreamy indie poppers Lucius, acclaimed singer-songwriter Rachel Yamagata, New York-based rocker Margaret Glaspy, gothic blues artist Adia Victoria and West Virginia rock-and-roller William Matheny.

Mountain Stage fans are a passionate lot. Last month, we announced the return of The Indigo Girls to our nationally-syndicated live performance radio program, leading to a totally sold out show within hours of the announcement.

Without our loyal fans and public radio members, there would be no Mountain Stage, and we never forget that. Which is why we invite you to join us on Sunday, September 18 at 7pm as we stream this live recording of Mountain Stage via VuHaus and MountainStage.org.
