Recorded in 2005, this show was Ann Magnuson's first appearance on Mountain Stage. The Charleston, W. Va. native received a B.F.A. in Theater and Cinema from Denison University and studied acting in London. Magnuson has been involved in several wildly eclectic and influential music projects, including the sardonic folk trio Bleaker Street Incident and the heavy metal group Vulcan Death Grip. She was also the lead singer and lyricist for the psycho-psychedelic band Bongwater.

Magnuson has released two solo albums, The Luv Show (1995) and Pretty Songs & Ugly Stories (2006). She has served as host of the annual West Virginia Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony and performed at her hometown's signature arts and entertainment festival, FestivALL Charleston. An accomplished character actress, Magnuson's many film credits include Making Mr. Right, Clear and Present Danger, Cabin Boy, The United States of Leland and Panic Room.
