Beth Orton, appearing on Mountain Stage October 28
Mountain Stage is thrilled to announce that we’ll
be returning to Charleston this
fall for two very exciting shows at the Culture Center Theater.
On Sunday, October 28 we’ll welcome
singer-songwriter Beth Orton, who is set to release her
first album in 6 years, called Sugaring
Season. Orton is a BRIT Award-winner
and two-time Mercury Prize nominee who has collaborated with Bert Jansch,
Emmylou Harris, Beck, Jim O'Rourke, Terry Callier, and Ryan Adams among others. Her last album, 2006's Comfort of
Strangers, was called "unerringly lovely" by SPIN and "her most accomplished record to date" by Uncut.
We’ll also be joined
by singer-songwriter Jesse Harris,
and Mexo-Americana folk duo David Wax Museum. Both have
appeared on the show before – Harris was on the heels of his Grammy win for the song “Don’t
Know Why,” which was recorded by Norah Jones. David
Wax Museum stunned a sold-out Mountain
Stage audience last March with their upbeat amalgam of Americana
and regional Mexican sounds that featured, among other things, a donkey
