Artist Series Box Office.
We’ll be joined by highly acclaimed Philadelphia-based indie-rockers Dr. Dog, whose heavily Beatles-influenced sound is evidenced on their latest ANTI-
records release Be The Void. They recently
recorded an episode of Austin City Limits for PBS and played a main-stage set
at Louisville, KY’s
Forecastle Music Festival.
Also appearing is folk trio The Mountain Goats, led by songwriter and singer
John Darnielle. Based in Claremont, CA,
Darnielle and his band are preparing for the release of their 14th album, Transcendental Youth on October 2.
Spirit Family Reunion will also be there. The band has been causing a big stir
recently, with a much buzzed about performance at the legendary Newport Folk
Festival in July, as well as a stirring performance at Virginia’s
Floyd Fest 11. NPR Music described the band as “a sweetly ramshackle Americana
sound that's part secular gospel revival, part folk ramble.” This promises to
be a break-out year for the band.
Red Wanting Blue, appearing on Mountain Stage November 4.
Red Wanting Blue are also set to appear. Proudly based in Columbus,
Ohio, RWB are often billed as “America’s
local band,” thanks to years and thousands of miles on the road throughout the
nation’s heartland, making fans one at a time. With only the aid of word of
mouth, Red Wanting Blue has established an exceedingly loyal following in the southeast
and Midwest, where they regularly fills clubs normally
reserved for bigger names.
As always, this show will be recorded for distribution to
over 120 NPR stations nationwide and overseas via the Voice of America.
Mountain Stage can be heard statewide every Sunday afternoon at 2 pm, and Saturday evenings at 8 pm on West Virginia Public Radio.
