Live from the Artists Den — Season 2

The acclaimed, innovative music series Live from the Artists Den launches its second season with a once-in-a-lifetime performance by the legendary Ringo Starr, backed by folk-funk star Ben Harper and his band, Relentless7, plus special guest Joan Osborne at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Premiering nationwide on public television beginning July 5, 2010 (check local listings)—the same week Ringo celebrates his 70th birthday (7/7/40)—Live from the Artists Den season two features seven never-before-seen performances by extraordinary artists in extraordinary settings. Each week, Live from the Artists Den spotlights a remarkable contemporary musician performing at an intimate, invitation-only concert, along with artist interviews and insights about the unconventional venues chosen. Filmed in high-definition, season two also features an exquisite performance by Tori Amos, filmed in front of just 100 fans at the Park Avenue Armory’s magnificent Veterans Room; singer/songwriter David Gray, filmed in the Wall Street neighborhood at the Broad Street Ballroom; British R&B star Corinne Bailey Rae at lower Manhattan’s Japanese-themed Hiro Ballroom; southern rock legends The Black Crowes at The Lyric Theatre in Oxford, Mississippi; new-school country superstar Dierks Bentley, surrounded by classic cars and neon signs at Chicago’s Ravenswood Billboard Factory; and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Booker T. Jones and the Drive-By Truckers, with special guest Bettye LaVette, at the gloriously restored Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. Preview videos, set lists and venue histories are available at wnet.org/artistsden. Live from the Artists Den is co-produced by Artists Den Entertainment and WLIW21 in association with WNET.ORG — one of America’s most prolific and respected public media providers. The series is distributed by American Public Television and funded in part by Grey Goose Entertainment.
