Jack White and Margo Price performed on ‘A Prairie Home Companion’ (which is now hosted by Chris Thile)


Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers’s Chris Thile took over for Garrison Keillor as host of NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion, with his debut happening Saturday, October 15. (Keillor retired in July but remains a producer on the show.) Those are big shoes to fill, but Chris’s first episode was aided by musical guest Jack White who stopped by for a four-song set.

Jack played two songs from his new Acoustic Recordings – 1998-2016 release — The White Stripes’ “City Lights” and the Raconteur’s “Carolina Drama” with Thile on mandolin. He then brought out  Margo Price (who is on his Third Man label) for the White Stripes song “I’m Lonely (But I Ain’t That Lonely Yet). Closing things out, he and his band also covered the old Bobby Bare song “(Margie’s At) The Lincoln Park Inn.”

You can listen to Chris Thile’s first A Prairie Home Companion, which also featured Lake Street Dive and comedian Maeve Higginshere, and check out the videos of all four songs he performed below.
