Those of you watching the Mountain Stage live show schedule know that there have been several exciting additions made over the past few days.

When return to our home away from home in Morgantown on March 17th, we’ll be joined by iconic jazz and blues guitarist Robben Ford. Originally hired as a teenager to back Charlie Musselwhite, Ford has called upon by Miles Davis, George Harrison, Joni Mitchell, and even played (uncredited) on the KISS Creatures of the Night LP. His latest release, due out in just a few days, is called Bringing it Back Home.

Mountain Stage is also thrilled to announce that white-hot band Vintage Trouble will be there. Founded in Hollywood, California, by vocalist Ty Taylor and guitarist Nalle Colt, the group’s fusion of rock and soul prompted music legend Booker T. Jones to declare, “The only thing troubling about Vintage Trouble is how authentic they are so early in the game.”

Vintage trouble has worked with Queen guitarist Brian May, toured with Bon Jovi, and played Paul Stanley’s 60th birthday bash (again, with the KISS connections). They’re slated to open for the Dave Matthews Band in April, and are currently on the road in support of bona fide rock n’ roll legends The Who.

We’ll also be joined on the 17th by accomplished singer-songwriter Steve Forbert, and the cinematic pop band Milo Greene. Tickets for this show are available right now, online via ticketmaster, by phone (304.293.SHOW) and in person at the CAC box office.

And Mountain Stage will be back in Morgantown on April 21, when we’ll welcome acclaimed singer-songwriters Billy Brag, Joe Pug, and the wildly influential Americana pioneers The Flatlanders. You can get your tickets for this show right now by visiting ticketmaster.

And music lovers in Charleston may already know that on March 24, Mountain Stage will once again host the great Loudon Wainwright III. What can we possibly say about Loudon, other than that among singer-songwriters who work night after night with only their voice and a guitar, his ability to captivate an audience has no peer.

And in just 3 weeks, we’ll be at the Culture Center Theater once more for a show featuring Jim Lauderdale and Buddy Miller, with material from their new collaboration Buddy & Jim. Tickets for both of these Charleston shows are on sale right now, online, by phone (800.594.TIXX) and in person at Taylor Books.

Follow us on Twitter for the latest – additional acts will be announced as they are confirmed.
