Love this one by Joe Dukie and Twinset ....beautiful song and from about the 1 min mark, I hear so many of the subtle,  beautiful but funky nuances that instantly remind me of James Taylor.

I like a lot of their stuff,  Slawie.  They have some really good grooves.

Irish Medley - Prairie Home Companion

We really could utilize a Like button nicely on this web page... I am sure adding something like that could be arduous, but boy would it make things simpler for me.

Apparently I have a difficult time just listening and enjoying, I feel compelled to comment and accentuate the obvious....
That Chris Thile, I love his energy and the way he kinda looks like a muppet on stage, yet a muppet with absolutely mad skills.  And the whole PHC band, the whole PHC show has taken on a new skin and become better than it was with Garrison at the helm (now offense, I love him also).

But just a Like button would keep my mania in check....

In the meantime I found this version of Nickel Creek's Lighthouse Tale, a beautiful song as originally recorded, with lyrics that choke me up every time I hear them... this is an extended live version with an outro that punctuates the pain and heartbreak.  And boy is that band looking young!  It is not a professional recording by any means but the performances crescendoing ending has such energy that it could still be impactful with no sound at all.

Enjoy:

No question, Chris Thile is a once-in-a-generation (or longer?) musical mind, and the PHC band is in very good hands. I do often wonder how the larger core audience of Prairie Home Companion is taking to life after Garrison Keillor though. Chris' sense of humor, while dry like GK's, can also be a bit of a high-wire act.

I'd vote for a like button too, but I generally like all you folks anyway.  ;D

Ever since Hot Tuna came up in this thread last week, I just can't seem to get enough of Casady's bass playin'.

At risk of over-posting, here's "Water Song" as played in 1973 on #72-001... https://youtu.be/AOOQ1woZWQY

...does anybody know if that's Mr. W. just behind the stage there?

Sorry, no - I love Thile as a musician, but PCH is NOT PCH without Garrison.  "News From Lake Woebegone" was the heart & soul of the show!

Can't over-post the Water Song, kinda synonymous with Hot Tuna for me.... That version is certainly eye brow raising!   ;D

I always thought Stratus was a Billy Cobham tune... nice hearing Bolin's live version - then my uneducated self just found out that Bolin played on Cobham's album.

I always seem to learn new things.

The Lighthouse Tale was nice; thanks!

While Like buttons can have positive effects, they can also have negative effects.  The mods have discussed this question in the past, and decided that the negative effects were something that we didn't want.

So in lieu of likes, comments will do nicely.

I'm watching this longer cut of the show...love the mini wall of Alembic Cabs.
I'll let you know if I see Ron in the shadows. Thanks for the heads up.

Here is a cool video that captures 12 strings rippling like water!!!

The tune has a Ralph Towner , Oregon type feel to it!!
