The Parkington Sisters appear on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of Ohio University in Athens. Hailing from the town of Wellfleet, Mass., each of the four sisters writes music and plays multiple instruments. Rose plays piano, guitar and accordion; Ariel and Sarah play violin and viola; and Nora plays violin and percussion. Together, they have a dynamic stage presence that's at once harmony-laden and dark — equally at home in clubs, theaters and symphony halls.

The group has toured with or opened for Dispatch, Dropkick Murphys and Mavis Staples, and in 2011 shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen at Bonnaroo. Here, the band plays songs from its most recent album, Inside My Head — including "Shadows," which was not heard during the radio broadcast.

Set List
  • "Plastic Islands"
  • "Shadows"
  • "September"
  • "Cruel"
  • "Inside Of My Head"
