The long-running band's take on Irish-American music is both traditional and contemporary. Seamus Egan, Winifred Horan and their current collaborators perform songs from their latest album, The Turning Tide.
In the group's second appearance on Mountain Stage since 2003, Calexico played a set of songs from its latest album, Carried to Dust. The band's robust, dynamic sound — driven by two trumpets, pedal steel, bass and piano — incorporates many ethnic influences.
Mike Farris, formerly of the rock group Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies, turned to creating gospel music in 2004, with his album Salvation in Lights. Farris showcases his powerful melding of modern and classic gospel in this edition of Mountain Stage.
