The incredibly talented Rufus Wainwright stopped by The Village this month to serenade the KCRW listeners with old favorites and a few new tunes. With an extensive catalogue of hauntingly distinctive originals, Rufus kept us all captivated during this live broadcast. For an added bonus, Wainwright’s sister Martha was in attendance lending her crystal-clear, folk style voice to several harmony parts, including a beautiful French piece taught to them by their late mother. Ghian Wright engineered with Ravel Boynton assisting.

Keith Urban landed at No. 1 on Billboard charts with his new LP “Fuse”. Sessions for the album were held earlier this year in studio A and engineered by one of our Village favorites – Eric Liljestrand. Fuse is Keith’s fifth top 10 album and his second No. 1! Congratulations to Keith from all of us at The Village! Be sure to go and give the record a listen if you haven’t!

Since releasing debut LP The Creek Drank The Cradle in 2002 – Iron & Wine has achieved great critical and commercial success. We had the honor of having both Sam and his backing band in studio for a KCRW session. We present the classic performance in its entirety below:
