John Wesley Harding

GOTHAMIST: How did you go about picking who would accompany your (le) Poisson Rouge shows?

John Wesley Harding: People whose work I really like and people with whom I really like to work. You can go through the list like that. Mostly the reaction was very positive, as you can see from who’s playing, For example, the one on Wednesday: Rosanne Cash – we weren’t friends, but we are now. I’m a huge fan and have been for years. Errollyn Wallen – fantastic classical composer from the UK. She’s setting some texts of mine to music and she’s going to play one. She’s coming over especially for the concert. Colson Whitehead – one of my favourite writers and a neighbour. I asked him to read a piece I saw him reading in Brooklyn recently. Colum McCann – a wonderful writer. We became friends at a literary conference in Paris, stayed up all one night singing folk songs, first in a restaurant with many people, and then in his hotel rooms. It was one of those nights that seemed never to end. I’m hoping Wednesday seems like that too, but in a good way. And of course Eugene Mirman will be there too – and we will then take the show, as “Wes and Eugene’s Cabinet of Wonders” all around America – which means it will be him, me, all my friends, but all his friends too.

As previously posted, John Wesley Harding’s Cabinet of Wonders scheduled three shows at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. The first was February 11th, the next is March 11th (TONIGHT), and the last is April 15th. Between now and the final show, John and Eugene will also do the above-mentioned tour together. That even includes a show at SXSW on March 20th. All dates, and lots of pictures from the Feb 11th show (with Jonathan Ames, Rick Moody, Eugene Mirman, Shivaree, Carla Rhodes, and P.T. Walkley), below…
