Wainwright has made 15 appearances on Mountain Stage since 1988, and returns to Charleston for the first time since 2013. He brought home a Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy award in 2010 for “High Wide and Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project” and his film acting credits include Judd Apatow’s “Knocked Up,” for which Wainwright also recorded the soundtrack. Also appearing on May 7 is the duo Nancy & Beth, comprised of fellow actresses Megan Mullally (Will & Grace, Party Down) and Stephanie Hunt (Friday Night Lights, Californication). The duo announced their upcoming self-titled album due April 7, and premiered a single recently via Rolling Stone Country. Mountain Stage will welcome back another long-time favorite in Canadian singer, songsmith and guitarist Bruce Cockburn returns Sunday June 4 at the Culture Center Theater. Cockburn has appeared on Mountain Stage 13 times since 1990 and returns to the show for the first time since 2012. In 2014 Cockburn released “Rumors of Glory” a 9 disc box set of his music, 117 songs in all, and a DVD called “Bruce Cockburn Live – The Slice O Life Tour.” These are a companion piece to his memoir of the same name, in which Cockburn writes “My songs are influenced by what I read, where I travel and what I witness.” He adds: They’re not just about spirituality or “war, injustice and exploitation,” but “derive from life itself.” Mountain Stage is a live performance radio program that is heard weekly on over 200 public radio stations across the country. The show is produced by West Virginia Public Broadcasting and distributed by NPR Music. These live events will be scheduled for broadcast in Spring 2017.
