This week’s episode of Mountain Stage is an encore featuring former Soul Coughing front-man Mike Doughty, Diane Birch, California rockers Dawes, Canadian acoustic duo Dala and Langhorne Slim. Click HERE to view the playlist.

Doughty performs songs from his album Sad Man Happy Man acoustic with a cellist, putting a spotlight on his intricate rhyming and vocal style. He sat down to talk with Larry Groce, “Backstage at Mountain Stage,” for a video interview you can watch right here. We also have YouTube interviews with Dawes and Langhorne Slim.
