Kathleen Edwards makes her second appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded in front of a sold-out audience in Charleston, W.Va. Edwards opens her set with the title song from her third album, Asking for Flowers, and then launches into four more tracks from her latest album, Voyageur — including "Chameleon/Comedian," which was not heard during the radio broadcast.

The daughter of a Canadian diplomat, Edwards was born in Ottawa but grew up traveling the world. Removed from the influence of mainstream North American pop, Edwards immersed herself in her older brother's record collection, which included fellow Canadian Neil Young, along with Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. After high school, she landed back in Ottawa, where she fell under the influence of artists like Lucinda Williams.

Williams is backed here by Gord Tough on electric guitar and Jim Bryson on guitars and keyboards.

Set List
  • "Asking For Flowers"
  • "Change The Sheets"
  • "House Full Of Empty Rooms"
  • "Chameleon/Comedian"
  • "Soft Place To Land"
