By Staff | Jan 9, 2015

Rumsey Radio Hour, which is Shepherdstown’s version of NPR’s Prairie Home Companion, is back, with performances on Jan. 17 and 18 at the new Marinoff Theater at Shepherd University. For awesome music, zinging political satire, hilarious comedy and tall tales galore, this is a not-to-be-missed event!

Last performed in November 2012, the star studded local cast includes WHAG s Mark Kraham, nationally acclaimed story teller and Shepherd University Appalachian Studies professor Adam Booth, WSHC s own DJ Todd Cotgreave and other famously talented artists including Todd Coyle, Clissy Funkhouser, Shepherd Professor Emeritus Phil Bufithis, Don Oehser and Laura First.

Performances are on Saturday, Jan. 17, with a 2 p.m. matinee and an 8 p.m. evening performance where beer and wine will be available, and Sunday, Jan. 18, at 2 p.m. only. Tickets are on sale now at the Shepherdstown Public Library or on line at www.foslwv.org/ and are only $20 for adults and $10 for children under 12.
