Jones, Wainwright highlight ‘Artists Den’
NEW YORK (AP) - Singer 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.
Despite the short season, PBS says producers are already at work preparing another season for next year.
