    Rhiannon Giddens was a guest on NPR's Mountain Stage, returning to the show to perform from the Augusta Heritage Festival in Elkins, WV, earlier this year. "T Bone Burnett mentions her with some very serious company—Nina Simone, Odetta, and others—and I think that she deserves that mention," says Mountain Stage host Larry Groce.

    Lake Street Dive was a guest on NPR's Mountain Stage, performing four songs from its Nonesuch Records debut album, Side Pony—"Godawful Things," "I Don't Care About You," "Side Pony," and "Call Off Your Dogs—and more. "The deal with Lake Street Dive is pretty simple: The band's four members can all flat-out play, sing and write," says the show.
