Singer-songwriter Jonathan Edwards makes his second appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Minn. Edwards opens with the song for which he's best known: his infectious Top 5 hit from 1972, "Sunshine." He's backed by the Mountain Stage band for all but the final song of his set, the rousing "This Island Earth," which he sings a cappella.

Ana Sia's DJ sets pull from a broad range of dance music styles, but are centered on bass-driven electronic beats.

Sia's profile is on the rise due to performances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, and now Moogfest.

Here, Ana Sia performs as part of Moogfest 2012 in Asheville, N.C.
