Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Nashville singer/songwriter Phillip LaRue. Phillip nearly lost his ability to play music after shattering his elbow in an accident. His arm was barely functional, and he endured an extensive recovery period, having to retrain his muscles to play guitar. Phillip LaRue’s commitment to music and being able to play guitar again kept him fighting - and pushed him to fully commit to a career in songwriting. He has since solidified himself as an in-demand songwriter in Nashville.

Tune in and rock the blues with two guitar men who do it with great authority. First up is Arkansas wild man and original Sun Records rockabilly Sonny Burgess who tore it up, playing his hits "We Wanna Boogie," "Red-Headed Woman" and others well into his eighties, before passing away last month. And hear a live set from the late great New Orleans bluesman and human jukebox Snooks Eaglin, recorded in 2007 at his home base, the famous Rock 'N' Bowl nightclub, where one can do either of those, or both, at the same time.

This week’s episode of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce marks the show’s first trip to the steel city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. You’ll hear a set from respected singers and songwriters Billy Bragg and Joe Henry, whose latest album celebrates the wide-open romance of the American railroad. You’ll also hear from acoustic folk-blues master Chris Smither, newcomer Kia Kater, atmospheric chamber folk from LAU, and Houston-based singer-songwriter Robert Ellis.  

Hear Mountain Stage every Saturday at 12:00 pm noon on KRCB-FM Radio 91!

 

This week's episode of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce features the return of finest folk rock duo in the land, The Indigo Girls. And Wynonna Judd makes her first ever appearance on the show, winning over new fans in seconds with her band Wynonna and the Big Noise. Female roots rock troubadour Lydia Loveless also makes her Mountain Stage debut, and you'll also hear a set by singer, songwriter and guitar hero Patty Larkin.

 They're all in live performance on MOUNTAIN STAGE, Saturday August 26th at 12:00 noon, here on KRCB-FM Radio 91!

Jason Eady joins us in the studio Tuesday 8/15 to talk about his new release 'Daylight and Dark', and play a tune or two.  Recorded in Nashville, Jason's sixth release is "a collection of real stories populated with real characters."  A songwriter in the tradition of Don Williams and Merle Haggard, both cited as big influences, he is the real deal, a storyteller.  

Listen Tuesday 8/15 at noon on KRCB-FM Radio 91!
