Next Broadcast:

John Prine, Sylvan Esso, Rory Scovel, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band
This week the show heads south for a live broadcast from the beautiful Saenger Theatre in New Orleans, right on the edge of the Vieux Carre. Joining in is the great John Prine, who got his start writing songs while holding down a postal route in Illinois. Over his nearly 50-year career, he's turned his incisive observations of American life into many of our most treasured songs. They'll also have music from electric duo Sylvan Esso, comedy from Rory Scovel, and -- after a triumphant appearance at the Fitzgerald Theater back in October -- our friends in the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will stop by for a song or two. Chris Thile's Song of the Month series continues, with duet partner Gaby Moreno, Rich Dworsky on keys, guitarist Chris Eldridge, Alan Hampton on bass, drummer Ted Poor, and Gabe Witcher on fiddle. After a week spent looking for sun, will Tom Papa find it at the southern end of the Mississippi? Find out when he checks in from Out In America.
