Last Thursday some very fortunate Emmylou Harris fans got a surprise visit from an old friend at The El Rey, as Ryan Adams dropped by to do a secret opening set for the legendary songstress. Usually making a name as one of the busiest (sometimes craziest) names in folk music, Ryan has been noticeably quiet over the past year seeming to focus more on his Pax Am label than any new recordings. However after his solo acoustic set, it appears as if Adams’ has jumped back on the song-writing horse and debuted some amazing new tracks… definitely some of the best of his most recent tepid material. Download the set below and watch videos in the Mumble On section.
Oh, and try and choke back tears during the “Oh My Sweet Carolina” duet with Emmylou herself.
