Mountain Stage hosted by Kathy Mattea, A Fundraising Event for WMRA Radio
September 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
For nearly 40 years, Mountain Stage has been the home of live music on public radio. Produced by West Virginia Public Broadcasting and hosted by Kathy Mattea, each two-hour episode can be heard weekly, Sunday night at 8 pm on WMRA, in addition to being broadcast on more than 280 stations across America and worldwide via NPR Music. Recorded in front of a live audience, this event features four world-renowned headliners (and more guests TBA) including Ireland’s folk and traditional music legend Karan Casey, a solo artist and founding member of the band Solas whose voice has lit up stages across the globe for 25 years; the U.K.-based retro-inspired rock band The Heavy Heavy, known for its soaring harmonies and tight rhythm section; Nashville-based Nigerian American singer-songwriter Joy Oladokun, whose R&B, pop and folk tunes have energized legions of fans; and singer-songwriter Michaela Anne, whose style recalls vintage Nashville sounds and California country-rock of the ‘70s.
