Noah Gundersen makes his first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. Though he's not even halfway through his 20s, some are already beginning to think of this singer-songwriter as a veteran musician. A native of the tiny town of Centralia, Wash., Gundersen recorded his first album at age 13 on a reel-to-reel home tape machine. He further honed his craft through a series of albums. Some of this work was solo, some was with his sister, Abby, and other material was created with their band, The Courage. He appears on Mountain Stage with Abby on violin. They play songs from their latest album, Ledges.
