Ryan Adams performs “A Prairie Home Companion” set

A lovely little listen if you have two hours to spare, again courtesy of US public radio which could do with all the support it can get right now.  Consequence of Sound reports: “The latest episode of “A Prairie Home Companion” featured Ryan Adams as a music guest. He previewed tracks from his upcoming album, Prisoner, including “To Be Without You” and “Doomsday”. He also performed two tracks off his 2011 album, Ashes & Fire, including the title track and “I Love You But I Don’t Know What To Say”. The latter performance saw Adams accompanied by country singer Kacey Musgraves, who was also a guest on the episode. 

Listen to the full episode here. It also featured La La Land composer Justin Hurwitz. Recent episodes of A Prairie Home Companion have featured Laura Marling, Andrew Bird, Regina Spektor, The Shins, and Jack White.
