Goodnight, Texas On Mountain Stage

Goodnight, Texas.
Goodnight, Texas.

Goodnight, Texas makes its first Mountain Stage appearance, recorded live in Charleston, W.Va. Singer-songwriters Avi Vinocur and Patrick Dyer Wolf began a musical collaboration while living in San Francisco in the mid-2000s. Wolf moved to North Carolina in 2009, but kept in close touch. Eventually, the two realized that the midpoint between their homes was the town of Goodnight, Texas, which they adopted as their musical moniker. In 2012, they added a rhythm section and released their debut, A Long Life of Living.

Goodnight, Texas has spent the last year and a half on the road, supporting acts like Shakey Graves and Rusted Root, in addition to playing two sold-out shows at San Francisco's Fillmore with Bombay Bicycle Club and Nicki Bluhm. The band's most recent album is called Uncle John Farquhar.
