This past May, legendary singer-songwriter and guitarist Bonnie Raitt appeared at WXPN’s Non-Commvention. Performing material from her recent album, Dig In Deep, Raitt also performed a few classics from her back catalogue.
At the end of her set, Bonnie invited Philly singer-songwriter Amos Lee out to duet on John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery,” a song that Raitt originally recorded with Prine on her 1974 album, Streetlights. Not having any time to rehearse, Lee played the part perfectly, and it was a highlight of Raitt’s set.
Both Bonnie and Amos are playing upcoming shows in Philly. XPN Welcomes Bonnie Raitt to the Mann Center on Friday, August 26th, and Amos Lee to the Academy of Music on Sunday, September 11th.
Tickets and more information can be found on the WXPN Concert Calendar.
