This week's radio broadcast is an encore episode featuring The Indigo Girls, banjo-master Alison Brown, acoustic blues-man Chris Smither, songwriter Gary Jules and affable songwriter and actor Jill Hennessy.
Check out our Song of the Week page to hear the Indigo Girls doing “Sugar Tongue” from their Mountain Stage set, then go find a radio station in your area to tune in for the whole show.
Amy and Emily invite Jill and Alison on stage for a couple of their best known tunes, including “Galileo.” This is a nice preview of the Indigo’s new double-live album “Staring Down the Brilliant Dream,” which is available for order here.
Stay tuned to NPR Music for individual guest segments, which include songs that may not have made it on to the radio broadcast. Right now you can hear Colin Hay, Ben Sollee and Poco, among many others. Coming up are Amy Speace, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, Cordis and The Proclaimers (above).
Don’t forget about the Mountain Stage Podcast which you can download from our ARCHIVES or subscribe to it on iTunes and Feedburner. The podcast also contains songs left off the radio and, whenever possible, the entire finale song.
