About this show

Northlight Theatre presents Fire on the Mountain, by Randal Myler and Dan Wheetman, directed by Myler. From the acclaimed creators of It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues comes a poignant, passionate musical about the lives of coal miners in the Appalachian Mountains, featuring Mississippi Charles Bevel (Jeff Award-winner for Blues) and Dan Wheetman (former fiddle player for John Denver). Alternately exuberant and soulful, joyous and gripping, this celebration of culture, lifestyle, hardships and heroics is gloriously relayed through the captivating rhythms of Appalachian bluegrass -- a uniquely American art form that gained widespread popularity following the release of the film O Brother, Where Art Thou?
