Mountain Stage Radio Preview: Tim O’Brien, Kathy Mattea & more

This week’s premier broadcast of Mountain Stage was recorded on the road in Grand Marais, Minnesota, in partnership with our friends at theNorth House Folk School, as a part of their tenth-annual Unplugged concert series.

The second of the two shows Mountain Stage recorded on the shore of Lake Superior, you’ll hear from Mountain Stage favorites Tim O’Brien and Kathy Mattea, along with the Great Lake Swimmers, Cathie Ryan, Sally Barris and John Vezner.

A favorite of Mountain Stage audiences, crew members, listeners, and fellow guest artists, Tim O’Brien has long held the record for appearing on the show more than any other artist. O’Brien plays several songs from his latest album ‘Chicken & Egg,’ and can also be heard playing alongside other guest throughout the show, including Kathy Mattea and Cathie Ryan.

Rightfully referred to by host Larry Groce as ‘our sweetheart,’ Kathy Mattea needs no introduction to Mountain Stage audiences. Mattea marks her 14th appearance on the show, alongside Tim O’Brien on fiddle, and longtime sideman Billy Cooley on lead guitar.
