We've got more great music in store for this week's broadcast of Mountain Stage. Most stations will be airing an encore show featuring Texas Americana mainstays The Gourds, plus folk pioneer Tom Rush, indie rockers Backyard Tire Fire and The Deep Vibration and singer/songwriter (and recent pop revisionist) Susan Werner.
Find a station and airtime for Mountain Stage in your area and be sure to tell some friends when and where they can tune in.
Tom Rush is widely renowned as a song interpreter, putting his own spin on tunes written by others. We have a shining example of that in our Song of the Week. Mr. Rush performs "Drift Away," a song that has been recorded in various styles in multiple decades. No one gives it the somber treatment that Rush does. He included it on his latest CD "What I Know" (click title to purchase), along with a few of his well known songs.
