The Teetotallers appear on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College. Born of an impromptu performance at a California Celtic Festival in 2010, the band features three of traditional Irish music's most respected performers: fiddler and violist Martin Hayes; flute, whistle and bodhrán player Kevin Crawford; and singer, guitarist, and bouzouki and mandola player John Doyle.

Doyle has served as a founding member of Solas, while Hayes has collaborated with the likes of Bill Frisell and Darol Anger. Crawford provides the backbone of the celebrated group Lunasa, It adds up to a staggering summit of musical imagination and experience on a single stage. This extended set includes the band's closing number, "Munster Reel," which was not heard during the original radio broadcast.
