Amy Speace performs on Mountain Stage, recorded live at West Virginia University in Morgantown. A talented singer-songwriter, Speace has worked for the past 10 years under the radar of the mainstream music industry. Her creative life started out amid New York City's theater scene, where she primarily performed Shakespeare with fringe and experimental companies. A chance meeting with legend Judy Collins changed the direction of her life when Collins invited Speace to join her on tour and subsequently recorded her song "The Weight Of The World." Collins called it "one of the best political folk songs I've ever heard."

Speace's latest album, That Kind Of Girl, was released in March. She performs here alongside violinist Megan Palmer and closes her set joined by the Mountain Stage house band.
