Two veterans of American folk music, David Bromberg and Jorma Kaukonen, join forces for this Mountain Stage appearance. The two men are joined here on mandolin by Barry Mitterhoff.

The set opens with Kaukonen singing Richard M. Jones' classic tune "Trouble in Mind," followed by Willie McTell's "Love Changing Blues," with vocal duties by Bromberg. Davis' "Bright Side" and a Bromberg original, "Helpless Blues," close out their segment.

"These are my neighbors, you know," Kaukonen says of the Morgantown, W.Va., audience, gathered for the opening of Mountain Stage's 27th season. Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch is located in nearby Pomeroy, Ohio. "I live right across that river over there."

Julie Adams and the Mountain Stage band follow with a rendition of Duke Ellington's "I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good."

This Mountain Stage performance originally aired April 8, 2010.
