After a handful of transportational difficulties, featuring seperate layovers in Flatwoods, WV and Mechanicsburg, PA, ending with a 3 1/2 hour Amtrak ride from Harrisburg, PA, and a ten minute cab ride from Penn Station to Town Hall, Mountain Stage has arrived in the Big Apple.
Somewhere in transit between Harrisburg and Philadelphia, the bad news continued when we found out that Todd Snider had fallen seriously ill and could not make the show. With last minute connections made by our esteemed host Virginia Giordano, we have found a worthy replacement in Ferron, who was on Mountain Stage some 15 years ago (at host Larry Groce's best recollection).
So as always, the SHOW MUST GO ON. As I type the Mountain Stage band is tuning up and we await the arrival of our guests Roseanne Cash, Rodney Crowell, Bruce Cockburn and our very special guest.
Don't forget to run over to NPR Music to hear blues man John Hammond in live performance from Mountain Stage!
