Joan Baez & Emmylou Harris receive Grammy nominations.

Two of our favorite artists, Joan Baez & Emmylou Harris, have both been nominated for a Grammy for their '08 albums in the category of Best Contemporary Folk / Americana Album. We own both wonderful albums. Baez's is Day After Tomorrow & Harris' is All I Intended To Be. We are looking forward to one day seeing Harris live. We saw Baez in March & loved the performance.

The Band's very last live performance together.

From Jan Hoiberg's "The Band" website:

Rick Danko played The Roxy in LA on the 1st March 1978. It was called "The Picnic in LA" and it was a Rick Danko band show, part of the tour. Because it was in LA, Levon, Richard and Garth sat in and Robbie came on stage for a couple of numbers. The photos below documents the event, which was the last time the original quintet played together. The other musicians seen in the photos are guitarist Michael DeTemple and sax player Jerry Peterson.
