Arlo Guthrie, live on Mountain Stage
This Sunday, Mountain Stage is back with an
all new episode featuring folk icon Arlo Guthrie,
along with his family band Boys Night Out.
Iconoclastic singer-songwriter Paul Thorn
opens the show with a special solo set, Broadway star and Huntington native Michael Cerveris,
brings his Americana sound to his hometown, and soulful country-pop newcomers Delta Rae
make their first appearance on the show.
For decades now, folk singer, songwriter
and raconteur Arlo Guthrie
has performed the heavy task of carrying on the legacy of his father, Woody
Guthrie, while earning a place as a highly regarded musician in his own right. This
year, Arlo is celebrating what would have been his father's 100th birthday. He
joins us for a special, hour-long extended set.
Paul Thorn, Backstage at Mountain Stage
We’ll also be joined on the Group W bench
by singer-songwriter Paul Thorn.
The son of a Pentecostal preacher, the nephew of a pimp (so the story goes)
former boxer turned musician, Paul Thorn has earned a loyal following over the
years through his signature blend of the sacred and profane. His most recent
album, What the Hell is Going On? follows his highly regarded
and Preachers and features Thorn's take on songs written by
everyone from Lindsay Buckhingham to Buddy Miller.
Delta Rae, live on Mountain Stage
Hailing from Durham, NC, DeltaRae fuses alt-pop band with rich Carolina soul. Recently signed to Sire/Warner, the
group has four lead singers and incorporates all aspects of Americana into a joyful, passionate performance. Delta
Rae has been headlining shows on both coasts, and released their debut Carry the Fire earlier this summer.
Michael Cerveris, live on Mountain Stage
Finally, you’ll hear from Huntington native Michael
Cerveris. An established, Tony-award winning actor who
has played John Wilkes Booth in Assassins, and originated the title role in the Broadway hit “Tommy.” As a
rock musician, he fronted the British band Retriever and was guitarist-vocalist
on Bob Mould's Dog and Pony Show tour. Some of his earliest experiences of
professional theater were thanks to the Marshall Artist Series (in particular
first national tours of Jesus Christ Superstar and Godspell), so his appearance
onstage at the Keith Albee for Mountain Stage celebrating MAS has a special
personal meaning for him.
