The popular radio show “Mountain Stage” will trek north this summer. The live concert program distributed by National Public Radio will travel from its regular West Virginia location to broadcast two episodes from the Charles Davis Concert Hall in Fairbanks. As mentioned in last week’s Paula Poundstone story, Fairbanks is no stranger to NPR – the city hosted “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me” last summer.
Past episodes of “Mountain Stages” have featured performances by the likes of Lucinda Williams, Mavis Staples, Cake, Vince Gill and many more, though performers for the Fairbanks dates have yet to be announced. Tickets for the August 17 and 18 are $30, available at the Summer Sessions and Lifelong Learning office on the UAF campus or by calling 866-404-7021.
