Daniel Lanois and Trixie Whitley of Black Dub
Daniel Lanois discuses his band Black Dub, backstage at Mountain Stage
Even if he were only known for his
roll in shaping the sound of iconic Irish rock band U2, (not to
mention Emmylou Harris' masterwork Wrecking
Ball) Daniel Lanois is
about as close to a household name as a record producer can be. But
Lanois has maintained a successful and wildly influential solo career
of his own, which has brought him back to the Mountain Stage three
times since 1989. Lanois' latest project is Black Dub, a
collaboration with singer Trixie Whitley, and amazing drummer Brian
Anais Mitchell, backstage at Mountain Stage
You'll also hear a performance by
singer-songwriter Anais Mitchell. Her set draws from her 2010 album
Hadestown, a self-described folk opera based on the Greek myth of
Orpheus and Eurydice, and set in a futurist poverty-stricken America.
If you like what you hear, take note! Mitchell is set to appear live
on Mountain Stage again on March 4th
of next year. Tickets are on sale now.
Justin Ringle of Horse Feathers, Backstage at Mountain Stage
There's also a performance by
chamber-pop group Horse Feathers. Based out of Portland, Oregon, and
centered around the songwriting of Justin Ringle, their latest album
is Thistled Spring.
Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Backstage at Mountain Stage
YouTube sensation Danielle AteThe Sandwich makes her first appearance on Mountain Stage, bringing
her trademark self-deprecating humor. Her YouTube channel has racked
up hundreds of thousands of views, thanks to her original songs, not
to mention several amazing cover tunes (everything from Hall & Oates to Lady Ga Ga).
Finally, you'll hear from DeltaSpirit. One part alt-country, one part indie rock, their most recent
album History From Below can be purchased here.
