Host Chris Thile brought his weekly radio variety show Live From Here to Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium for a live broadcast on Saturday afternoon. Guests on the episode included Courtney Barnett and David Rawlings.
Barnett played guitar and was accompanied by Waxahatchee keyboardist Katie Harkin, drummer Dave Mudie and bassist Andrew “Bones” Sloane. Rawlings also played guitar (though his was acoustic) and brought along his longtime collaborator Gillian Welch on acoustic guitar, Brittany Haas on fiddle, Willie Watson on acoustic guitar and Paul Kowert on upright bass.
Barnett led performances of “City Looks Pretty,” “Need A Little Time” and “Nameless, Faceless.” The three songs are singles off her forthcoming sophomore album Tell Me How You Really Feel, which is due out on May 18. Barnett also led a rendition of the album track “Sunday Roast.”
Rawlings’ appearance saw takes on “Midnight Train” and “Cumberland Gap” from this 2017 album Poor David’s Almanack. Also played was “Why She Needs Me” as well as a cover of Conor Oberst’s “Method Acting” that segued into Neil Young’s “Cortez The Killer.” Follow this link to stream the audio of the entire episode and watch video highlights from The Ryman below:
