Hey Mavis makes its first visit to Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. The Akron, Ohio, band's blend of string-band music, honky-tonk, folk and Americana has taken it from porch concerts in Cuyahoga Valley National Park to an appearance as a finalist in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest. Hey Mavis has played to sold-out audiences in Ohio and overflow crowds at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival.

Things started to get serious for the band in 2010, soon after producer Don Dixon (R.E.M., The Smithereens, Red Clay Ramblers) heard the band on a Michael Stanley Christmas compilation CD. Four months later, Dixon produced Hey Mavis' debut album, Red Wine. In addition to writing the lion's share of the group's songs, Laurie Michelle Caner sings lead and plays banjo alongside violinist Eddie Caner, Bryan Thomas on upright bass and Anthony Taddeo on drums.
