Patty Loveless and Jim Lauderdale and Friends at New York’s Allen Room

The New York Times reviews Patty Loveless’ performance at the Allen Room, where she appeared as part of Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series. Among her older songs Loveless covered cuts off “Sleepless Nights” (Saguaro Road), her newest release of country classics from the 1950s and ’60s, many written and recorded by George Jones.

The New York Times also reviewed a performance at the Allen Room of Jim Lauderdale, Catherine Russell and members of the folk-gospel quintet Ollabelle  Fiona McBain and Amy Helm (daughter of Levon) and others performing a live interpretation of the Grateful Dead’s classics “American Beauty and “Workingman’s Dead.”
