Mountain Stage with Larry Groce

Sundays at Noon

Now in its 31st season, Mountain Stage has been giving radio audiences the best seat in the house for some of the world's most renowned performers. Distributed by NPR Music and the Voice of America, Mountain Stage with Larry Groce is the longest running two-hour live-performance radio show of its kind. Each show features five guest artists performing live in front of an audience with studio quality audio. Showcasing talent from all over the world and in virtually every style of music, Mountain Stage has played host to world-class musicians and songwriters while consistently turning audiences on to new music.

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.

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.

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.

They appear on this week's 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.
