Listen to our complete appearance on Mountain Stage at:

We recently appeared on the Mountain Stage radio program, a wonderful NPR show out of West Virginia.  This particular broadcast was recorded at the Paramount Theater in Bristol, TN/VA where we were privileged to be a part of it through the fine folks at the Birthplace of Country Music Alliance.

Bristol, TN/VA is the "Birthplace of Country Music" as it was the home of the first great recording sessions in the field of Country Music/Old Time Music back in 1927 and '28 when the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Alfred Karnes, B.F. Shelton,  J.P. Nestor and so many others first recorded.  We play 5 tunes including "Train on the Island" by J.P. Nestor from the original Bristol Sessions.
