Fiona Apple was one of the guests on last Saturday’s edition of A Prairie Home Companion. The vocalist led a tribute to rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Fats Domino who had passed away at the age of 89 earlier in the week.
Apple’s time on stage at Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California saw her lead performances of two songs from her 2012 album The Idler Wheel… and a track from 1999’s When the Pawn…. With host Chris Thile on mandolin and Richard Dworsky on keyboards directing The Show Band made up of guitarist Sean Watkins, bassist Paul Kowert, drummer Ted Poor and fiddler Gabe Witcher, Apple performed “Werewolf” and “Every Single Night” off The Idler Wheel… and the ensemble offered a rendition of the When the Pawn… song “Fast As You Can.”
Saturday’s program also saw Apple and the band joined by vocalist Madison Cunningham on a cover of Fats Domino’s “Ain’t That A Shame.” Follow this link for more details of the episode featuring additional guests Dan Auerbach, Robert Finley, Nick Offerman and Hilary Hahn.
