Favorite livestream performances of 2020


There were a lot of really great ones.

Here are a couple of my favorites:

Amanda Shires - I So Lounging series
Josh Ritter - Silo Sessions series
John Prine Tribute
Paul Simon, etc - till further notice
Nathaniel Rateliff - And It’s Still Alright (live at home)


The John Prine Tribute was fantastic. I also liked:

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass
Steve Earle/Fundraiser for his son’s school
Jason Isbell New Year’s Eve show
Allison Moorer at City Winery (she played The Hardest Part and Blood in full)
Adam Carroll playing each of his albums in full
Malcolm Holcombe playing each of his albums in full (from what looked like his broom closet)
Hayes Carll Alone Together


The only one I watched was GBV. It was good.


I loved Laura Marlings live stream from Union Chapel.
Steve Poltz at the Poway Arts Center and the Tweedy Show almost every night. Ricki Lee Jones was wonderful also.

Help! I’ve fallen into the Toyah and Robert worm hole.
