In the midst of a historical lockdown with people spending a hazy daze of unprecedented hours in their house, what a time to dive back into a set of music written about home’s comforts and complexities. Who better to pull back the complicated shades of home than a seasoned veteran of the road, like Jason Isbell.

This week on Mountain Stage we look back to another classic episode from 2010, this time featuring live performances from Cake, Hayes Carll, Old 97s and Hot Club of Cowtown. Tune in on one of these public radio stations starting this Friday, May 1.

The live show is sold out, but thanks to West Virginia Public Broadcasting and VuHaus you can experience this Sunday's Mountain Stage, with guest-host Kathy Mattea, from anywhere.

Morgantown, West Virginia native Charles Wesley Godwin's  song "Coal Country" reminds us that the commodity's impact reaches far beyond Appalachia, broadening the definition of what many think of as "Coal Country."

Hiss Golden Messenger appears on this week's Mountain Stage, with songs from their album "Hallelujah Anyhow," as well as this tune from their 2013 release "Haw."

Our Song of the Week comes from acclaimed Nashville singer and songwriter Kim Richey, along with her band and San Francisco's Chuck Prophet, who was a guest on this episode and also appears on Richey's new album "Edgeland."

Our Song of the Week is "Southern Gothic," the title track from Tyminski's 2017 release. The album is an artistic departure from a new group led by bluegrass mainstay Dan Tyminski, which incorporates drum loops and electronics for a modernized roots sound.

The group debuted new material from the album in Morgantown this past January.

The host of Mountain Stage from West Virginia Public Broadcasting was recently named a "Southerner of the Year" by Southern Living Magazine.

Bluegrass mainstays Dan Tyminski and Ronnie Bowman join forces on this week's Mountain Stage, beginning with their take on the Jimmy Martin classic "Hold Whatcha Got."
