Jack is grateful to The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing for honoring him at their 10th Annual Grammy Week celebration (hyperlink to grammy website article/PR) event. Comprised of over 6,500 professionals, the Producers & Engineers Wing addresses issues that affect the craft of recorded music, including the development and implementation of new technologies, technical guidelines and recommendations, and archiving and preservation initiatives.
Last night, Jack took to the stage at The Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN for a special four song acoustic performance on the season premiere of A Prairie Home Companion hosted by Chris Thile in support of his career-spanning acoustic album. Backed by Lillie Mae Rische, Dominic Davis, and Fats Kaplin, Jack performed “City Lights,” “Carolina Drama,” “(Margie’s At) The Lincoln Park Inn,” and was joined by very special guest Margo Price for a rendition of The White Stripes’ “I’m Lonely (But I Ain’t That Lonely Yet).” Watch highlights from the show below, including Jack’s first performance together with Margo, and listen to a full audio archive of the episode at prairiehome.org.
