Norah Jones, Wallflowers Set for New Season of 'Live From the Artists Den'
NEW YORK (AP) -- Norah Jones performs in a former Brooklyn brass foundry near her home in the opening of a new season of PBS’ Live From the Artists Den in two weeks.
Public television’s music performance series kicks off its fifth season with Jones on Oct. 5. Different public stations air the show at different times. The four-episode season will also feature Rufus Wainwright, The Wallflowers and Mayer Hawthorne.
The series specializes in filming artists in unusual settings. Wainwright will sing at the Church of the Ascension in Manhattan and Hawthorne was filmed at the Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.
Previous seasons of Artists Den have featured such performers and locations as Adele at the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club, Ringo Starr in the Egyptian wing of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Death Cab for Cutie at the Brooklyn Museum and Robert Plant and the Band of Joy at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville.
Despite the short season, PBS says producers are already at work preparing another season for next year.
