Formerly the frontman of the jazzy experimental rock band Soul Coughing, singer-songwriter and guitarist Mike Doughty cut his first solo record, Skittish, while that group was still together. Soul Coughing disbanded in 2000, but Doughty's 2005 album Haughty Melodic spawned his hit "Looking at the World Through the Bottom of a Well."

"Nectarine (Part Two)," "Rising Up" and "Doubly" are from his latest release, Sad Man Happy Man, which builds upon his rhythmic song catalog. Here, Doughty performs with his longtime touring partner, cellist Andrew "Scrap" Livingston.

This Mountain Stage concert originally aired on January 11, 2010.
