Last night, Jack took to the stage at The Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN for a special four song acoustic performance on the season premiere of A Prairie Home Companion hosted by Chris Thile in support of his career-spanning acoustic album. Backed by Lillie Mae Rische, Dominic Davis, and Fats Kaplin, Jack performed “City Lights,” (off Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016) “Carolina Drama,” “(Margie’s At) The Lincoln Park Inn,” and was joined by very special guest Margo Price for a rendition of The White Stripes’ “I’m Lonely (But I Ain’t That Lonely Yet).” Watch highlights from the show below, including Jack’s first performance together with Margo, and listen to a full audio archive of the episode at prairiehome.org.
SINGER-SONGWRITER-MUSICIAN SETS TO WORK ON NEXT SOLO ALBUM WITH JACK WHITE PRODUCING
SET TO APPEAR WITH WHITE ON A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION THIS SATURDAY
TEAMED WITH LANGHORNE SLIM FOR THIRD MAN & LUCK REUNION ‘LUCK MANSION SESSIONS’
We are so pleased to announce Lillie Mae Rische as the latest member of our growing roster. Lillie Mae is well-beloved by Third Man fans, who will be pleased to hear that she currently at work recording her much anticipated solo album with Jack White producing.
“Lillie Mae has been performing on stage since she was 3 years old,” said White. “She is an incredible writer who can play an array of instruments and has paid her dues from the honky-tonks on Broadway to stages around the world. She is a beloved artist in Nashville, and I think it is safe to say that she is one in a billion. You wont find anyone else quite like this woman no matter how long you live.”
“I'm proud to have become a part of the Third Man family, where there is no shortage of hard work and dedication to creating and making available the music we love so,” Rische said. “I'm forever thankful to Jack for believing in me and giving me a chance and all the freedom I've needed to make this album.”
The album follows Rische’s debut single, “Nobody’s” b/w “The Same Eyes,” released in 2014 as part of Third Man’s ongoing Blue Series. Discovered by the legendary Cowboy Jack Clement when playing with her family band The Rische’s (formerly Jypsi), comprised of sisters Amber-Dawn, Scarlett, and Grace, and brother Frank, the country outfit can often still be heard at the historic Layla’s Bluegrass Inn in Nashville. Rische has also spent considerable time as a member of White’s crack touring and recording combo, playing fiddle and mandolin while also lending vocals to such tracks as “Temporary Ground,” from 2014’s LAZARETTO. She will once again join White on fiddle and backing vocals for a special acoustic performance on A Prairie Home Companion with Chris Thile this Saturday, October 15th, along with Dominic Davis and Fats Kaplin. The show will be broadcast live around the world from the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN at 5pm CT via www.prairiehome.org.
Rische also recently partnered with Langhorne Slim to record two songs as part of Third Man & Luck Reunion’s Luck Mansion Sessions during AmericanaFest in Nashville this past September. The songs will be released on 7-inch vinyl with an accompanying video in early 2017. Watch a sneak peek video of the sessions below...
Over the week of September 19-24, while AmericanaFest flooded every corner Nashville, Luck Reunion and yours truly holed up in an East Nashville mansion - bringing together Americana's finest for inspired collaborations. Here is a glimpse of what happened at the Luck Mansion.
For five days, artists set up in the parlor room of the pop-up "Luck Mansion" to perform for audiences of no more than 15 covering classics — from Guy Clark to Concrete Blonde — or, in some cases, a brand new song co-written by the pair on-the-spot. (Parker Millsap/Sarah Jarosz, John Paul White/Rodney Crowell, and Langhorne Slim/Lillie Mae Rische all churned out new original tunes!)
The tape was rolling for the entire week with Third Man engineers at the helm, capturing these stunning performances to take beyond the walls of the mansion to showcase the soulful collaborations that occurred. Luck Reunion and Third Man Records will be releasing ongoing video of the sessions as well as a collection of 45's, rolling out one-by-one in early 2017. More on that in the coming weeks...
Have a look at what's went down and what's in store below... and head to NPR for their take on the sessions!
