Virginia

Mountain Stage with Larry Groce travels to the campus of Radford University in Radford, VA for this week’s episode. We’ll hear performances by folk music mainstay John Gorka, award-winning Nashville singer and songwriter Shawn Camp, plus emerging Toronto folk-rockers The Weather Station and Virginia songwriters Scott Miller and Dori Freeman.  

In the wake of the protests by neo-Nazis and white supremacists that turned deadly in Charlottesville, Virginia, President Donald Trump has come under fire for not immediately and clearly condemning American racists. It’s not the first time. Trump and those close to him have often played down the threat of violence committed by white supremacists across the country.  

This week, through interviews with key Trump supporters and advisers, we explore if we should have seen Charlottesville coming and if we should expect more race-based clashes on the way.
