Another not-so-bluegrass artist, Jenny Lewis, had a slew of fans singing along at her early evening set Friday on the main stage.
With help from her band and a special guest appearance by Elvis Costello, she ran through songs from both of her solo albums, a tribute to Emmylou Harris and a new tune.
“Hey, it’s good to be here,” Jenny said. “My name’s Jenny, this is Jonny over here. Jonny, is this next song going to be a bluegrass song?”
“Not a strictly bluegrass song,” Jonathan said. “Though there may be some grass involved.”
The Charging Sky
“This song is called ‘You Are What You Love.'”
You Are What You Love
“Thank you,” Jenny said.
“This next song is a love song about a mother and her son.”
Jack Killed Mom
“Thanks for that one, sorry mom.”
Silver Lining (solo)
“Thank you so much, this is my choir that travels with me. It’s pretty convenient. This song is called ‘Acid Tongue.'”
“That was for all you young lovers out there in the tents.”
Rise Up With Fists!!!
“Thank you, over there, I saw those fists! This is my new guitar, it has a Palm Beach motif. And with this new guitar we’re going to use it to do a new song.”
Just Like Zeus
“That was Danielle on guitar. This next song is a cover song, maybe some of you know it. Sing along if you want.”
“This song goes out to all the VIPs, don’t do too crazy,” Jonathan said.
Handle With Care
“Thank you. We have a very special guest for the next song, Elvis Costello!”
“Thank you, Elvis!”
The Next Messiah
“Well, thank you for that one. We’d like to dedicate this next one to Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons.”
“Thank you, you guys have been so cool. My name is Jenny Lewis and this is my amazing band, or part of it. Ready Barbara? She’s got her sticks in the air.”
