Watch NPR Music ‘Americana Alphabet’ Peformances

Some amazing clips here if you have time to watch.  NPR.org reports: “During AmericanaFest last month, NPR Music’s Ann Powers and contributor Jewly Hight got together with musicians at Nashville’s historic Union Station Hotel for a series of intimate “Americana Alphabet” performances. Throughout the week, they hosted Dawes and Lydia Loveless, Billy Bragg and Joe Henry, The Lumineers, Lori McKenna, Shovels & Rope and Bobby Rush, all of whom set up in the ornate hotel in various stripped-down configurations. Each of these performances celebrates Americana music by challenging artists to engage with some of the genre’s most treasured keywords. Watch the sessions [here].”
