Joe Henry at the 2015 Fretboard Summit

As you may recall, JH participated in the first ever Fretboard Summit in November of 2015.  No doubt, many magical moments took place at this unique event, and you can get a glimpse of it now.  Here is a video of JH performing “Eyes Out For You” accompanied by the incomparable Bill Frisell on guitar.

Joe also conducted an amazing interview with David Crosby, and a podcast of that hourlong discussion can be found at FJ’s archive or on iTunes (Podcast #92).  The location for the 2nd Annual Fretboard Summit will be announced in late January.

In other Frisell news, he will release a new album on January 29.  When You Wish Upon A Star is his very unique spin on classic film music.

And after guesting on Lucinda Williams’ 2014 release Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone, Frisell will appear on all but one track on her new record Ghosts of Highway 20, due on February 5.  Like its predecessor, it was co-produced by longtime JH cohort Greg Leisz, who also contributes guitar and pedal steel throughout.  Frisell will join Lucinda for her March 4 performance at UCLA’s Royce Hall.
