Comprised of two pairs of brothers and sisters, London's Magic Numbers visited Mountain Stage in 2006. Blending sonic experimentation with the sweet California sunshine pop of groups like The Lovin' Spoonful and The Mamas & The Papas, The Magic Numbers released its self-titled debut to wide critical acclaim in 2005. Since that Mountain Stage appearance, the group has released Those The Brokes, and in 2010, The Runaway. The latter featured string parts written by frequent Nick Drake collaborator Robert Kirby, who passed away shortly after the project's completion.

The Magic Numbers are followed by Julie Adams, backed by the Mountain Stage band, with her own rendition of the Carole King / Gerry Goffin standard "Up on the Roof."
