The Best World Cafe Performances From 2013
We sifted through all 188 bands and individual artists that joined us to perform on the World Cafe in 2013 and we have settled on the very best for these two hours. It wasn’t easy.
I get to sit opposite singers or in the midst of the bands (I’m usually next to the drummer) every day as we talk about the music. It’s only later as we listen to the playback that I get to hear how extraordinary the songs we capture really are. Nobody phones it in. Even if they have driven all night from Boston they bring it for The World Cafe and ultimately you.
Today we will hear from Laura Marling, Okkervil River, Richard Thompson, Jason Isbell, Dawes and Phoenix just to name a few. Unique performances, this is what we do. Enjoy!
Some of the performances that were bubbling under are available for free downloads.
