Watch: Chris Thile and Brad Mehldau Perform on “CBS This Morning: Saturday”

Mandolinist/singer Chris Thile and pianist Brad Mehldau were guests on CBS This Morning Saturday this past weekend. The Nonesuch Records label mates stopped by the CBS studios for a Saturday Sessions performance of three songs from their forthcoming debut duo album, Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau: Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright,” Elliott Smith’s “Independence Day,” and Thile and Mehldau’s own “The Old Shade Tree.” The selection reflects the mix of covers and original songs on the new double album, which is due January 27 on Nonesuch. You can watch the performances below.

Thile also spoke with CBS This Morning about his new role as host of the public radio program A Prairie Home Companion. You can listen to this past Saturday’s episode, broadcast live from The Town Hall in New York and featuring among its special guests Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers, Yo-Yo Ma, and Edgar Meyer, at prairiehome.org.
