Heart of Gathering Mountain Stage takes the front porch to the airwaves


Heart of Gathering shines a light on event creators who bring together communities and share their passions with the world. In this episode, we travel to Charleston, West Virginia -- a town where time slows down, people have a sense of place, and music is at the heart of culture -- where Kathy Mattea, Grammy-winning host of live radio broadcast Mountain Stage, shows us how music creates connection and community in the heart of Appalachia.

Take a look behind Mountain Stage to see how this intimate West Virginia event became one of the best live radio music shows in the country -- and a place for musicians and music fans to gather.
