"Trouble Is" by Charlie Worsham, appearing live on Mountain Stage Oct 16
Mountain Stage is happy to announce that two more acts have
been booked for a pair of upcoming shows at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston.
October 16, we’ll welcome Nashville-based
singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Charlie Worsham..
Featured on the
Grand Ole Opry in 1998 as a 12-year-old banjo prodigy, lately Worsham has been catching
buzz for his forays into rootsy pop, and has been opening for some of the
biggest mainstream acts in country music – but don’t let that scare you. Worsham
has an active YouTube channel where you can see his full range of talent as a
singer, picker, and writer on display, including a "cover project" where he spends
just 12 hours recording a unique version of a song picked by his Twitter
followers.This show will also features Brett Dennen, The Kruger Brothers and the
Red Clay Ramblers.
Blitzen Trapper, appearing October 23rd on Mountain Stage
On October 23, Oregon-based alternative country-folk
band Blitzen Trapper will be joining us. Their 2007 album Wild Mountain Nation was
met with great enthusiasm by critics, and their 2008 follow-up Furr was named
the 13th best album of the year by Rolling Stone.
You can download a
free EP from the band’s website here, and their forthcoming album, American
Goldwing, is available for streaming (again, for free!) on Paste Magazine’s website. You can also check out the the band's latest video below. Or, if you’re out and about, you can check out Blitzen Trapper on
their co-headlining tour with recent Mountain Stage favorite Dawes.
appearing live will be Jason Isbell & the 400
Unit, and James McMurtry. More artists will be announced for these shows as they are
confirmed. Stay connected with us for the latest.
Thanks for supporting
