New York 2015 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Lincoln Center, Damrosch Park, New York, New York; August 8, 2015. Very good audio ripped from webcast.

The highlight of this show is the Watkins Family Hour and Friends covering Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited in its entirety with Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 thrown in for good measure. The Friends include Al Kooper, Shawn Colvin and Aimee Mann.

Thanks to indykid for sharing the webcast at Dime.

indykid noted:

Watkins Family Hour is a monthly residency hosted by siblings Sean & Sara Watkins, and ‘Highway 61 Revisited’, the album that changed the way we hear rock, folk, and blues, and became the defining soundtrack for a generation, bursts into new life as Dylan’s masterpiece is covered track-by-track by a house band made up of the Watkins Family Hour house band, Shawn Colvin, Pokey LaFarge, and Aimee Mann & Ted Leo - some of the various artists it inspired. Grammy-winning Nickel Creek co-founders Sean and Sara Watkins helped revive today’s bourgeoning bluegrass and folk scenes. Alongside their solo careers, the siblings regularly gather musical friends at favorite LA club Largo. That fabled jam session now moves east to Lincoln Center Out of Doors for an evening with rock and pop greats, including Fiona Apple.
