Chris Thile, Cory Wong & Sarah Jarosz Cover The Rolling Stones On ‘Live From Here’
Last weekend’s episode of Live From Here featured host Chris Thile leading a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter.” Regular Live From Here contributors, Cory Wong of Vulfpeck and Sarah Jarosz of I’m With Her, were among the other musicians onstage at The Town Hall in New York City last Saturday afternoon.
The cover of The Stones’ classic came during the public radio program’s weekly musicians’ birthdays segment in honor of guitarist Keith Richards who turned 76 yesterday. The performance also featured the show’s musical director, bassist Mike Elizondo, with drummer Eric Doob, guitarist Chris Eldridge, violinist Alex Hargreaves and keyboardist Brett Williams, along with Wong on guitar and Jarosz providing Merry Clayton’s signature vocal part. Official video footage of “Gimme Shelter” was shared by Live From Here and can be viewed below:
