The Music of Inside Llewyn Davis

They played it on Showtime again this week. It’s called  “Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the music of  ‘Inside Llewyn Davis'”,  but it’s really a celebration of American Folk music in general. Put together by T-Bone Burnett,  it features musicians and actors who were in the movie, like Oscar Isaac and Carey Mulligan, Marcus Mumford (who recorded a duo with Isaac for the soundtrack), and a whole bunch of musicians that Burnett has produced or used in other movie projects.  That includes Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, The Secret Sisters, The Punch Brothers and Rhiannon Giddens, who has a new album produced by T-Bone that will be out shortly. In addition,  there are performances by Joan Baez (!) Dirk Powell (from Joan’s band) Elvis Costello,  Keb Mo and Bob Dylan’s friend and road manager, Bob Neuwirth.

There is a new CD of music from the show, which is why I mention it at this point in time.  It means that Showtime will probably be airing the show to promote the album a few times in the near future and I thought you could catch it that way.  Of course you could always buy the “Instant Video” from Amazon.  If you decided to do that, you know the deal by now, visit WUMB.ORG first and click on the Amazon logo so a portion of the proceeds of your purchase will be donated to the station.

Thanks and enjoy……
