Jack White Performs A Prairie Home Companion Acoustic Set With Chris Thile [Video]

first_imgJack White has been on a bit of a sabbatical from performing live over the last year. However, White decided to take to the stage last night at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN, for a special acoustic set at the opening night of A Prairie Home Companion with Chris Thile‘s tour. The Punch Brothers‘ mandolinist has recently taken over host duties from originator Garrison Keillor for the ‘Companion’ traveling show.With the First-Call Radio Players backing him, Thile performed a set of unabashed Americana music, including a cover of Bob Dylan‘s “Subterranean Homesick Blues.” Thile invited White out for a four-song set, which saw the guitarist perform alongside Thile, with a backing band made up of Lillie Mae Rische (fiddle), Fats Kaplin (pedal steel guitar), and Dominic Davis (bass).White performed The Raconteurs‘ “Carolina Drama,” The White Stripes‘ “City Lights” and “I’m Lonely (But I Ain’t That Lonely Yet)” with fellow Third Man Records artist Margo Price, and the 1969 Bobby Bare hit “(Margie’s At) The Lincoln Park Inn.”Check out some video from the performance below. A full stream of the show can also be viewed at www.prairiehome.org. Thile will be hosting and traveling with the A Prairie Home Companion show through early 2017 with a variety of special guests including Esperanza Spalding, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Jason Isbell, and more.
