NPR Music’s Mountain Stage radio show—produced by West Virginia Public Broadcasting, and an on-air home for live country, folk, and blues performances—comes to the Berklee Performance Center with a star-studded lineup that spans generations of folk luminaries.
Host Kathy Mattea, a Grammy-winning country and folk artist, takes the stage alongside special guest Rosanne Cash—hailed by Rolling Stone as “one of the most ambitious and literary songwriters of her generation”—in her return to Celebrity Series for the first time since 2014.
Loudon Wainwright III and Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway make their Celebrity Series debuts alongside Cash. For more than fifty years, Wainwright has written and performed heartfelt songs that continue to chronicle all the ups and downs of his life with his characteristic wit, honesty, and humor. Tuttle, praised for her "expressive, crystalline voice and astounding flat-picking guitar skills" (Rolling Stone Country), represents roots music's new generation and appears with Golden Highway, her brand-new bluegrass band.
This performance will be recorded for future on-air broadcast on the Mountain Stage syndicated NPR radio show.
This performance features American Sign Language interpretation by Donnie Gibbons and Claire Lombardo Miller.

“Rosanne Cash has been making great records for forty years, but she's never played or written better music than she's doing right now.”NPR
“Mr. Wainwright has proved to be far and away the most candid diarist among the singer-songwriters who...brought confessional poetry into popular song.... Mr. Wainwright wrings more human truth out of his contradiction than any other songwriter of his generation.”Stephen Holden The New York Times
“[Molly Tuttle's] songs, singing and solos, much like her demeanor, tend to have an inward-looking elegance to them; they’re the outward expressions of a searching mind and a longtime dedication to cultivating her craft.”Jewly Hight NPR
