Willie Nelson on PBS ‘Soundstage’


Last September, Willie Nelson filmed a segment of ‘Soundstage,’ the television music series filmed in Chicago which airs on PBS.   Willie performed with an eight-piece band, assembled by T-Bone Burnett, including Willie on his guitar, a banjo, mandolin, fiddle and steel guitar.   Burnette produced an album by Willie and this group of musicians earlier this year in Nashville, and, includings  Bob Wills’ Trouble In Mind, Bill Mack’s, ‘Drinking Champagne’, Al Dexter’s Pistol Packin’ Mamma and the Joe “Red” Hayes and Jack Rhodes classic Satisfied Mind,  Johnny Bush’s, ‘Whiskey River, and Dark As A Dungeon.’

From everything I have read, the show will air on PBS this Saturday, February 20, 2010, in some markets, and on February 25th, in others.  Check your local PBS listings to see when it air in your neck of the woods.
