    Emmylou Harris and Shawn Colvin Perform on PBS's "Soundstage" with Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller

    Tune in to Soundstage on PBS stations across the country, starting tonight, to catch Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, and Buddy Miller in an in-the-round performance of their unbeatable touring team, Three Girls and Their Buddy. The set list includes songs like Colvin's "Polaroids" and Harris's "Michelangelo," "Hold On," and "Love and Hapiness," the last of which you can watch online in a video preview of the episode at pbs.org. You'll also find more information on the show, including a complete set list, and local listings there as well. Fans in Los Angeles can tune in on KCET tonight at 10 PM for the broadcast premiere.

    Colvin and Harris were both in Los Angeles for Grammy-related events last weekend. Colvin's latest Nonesuch release, Live, which includes a spare guitar-and-vocal rendition of "Polaroids," was nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album. There's a photo of a stunning-looking Colvin on the red carpet here at grammy.com.

    Harris was in town to perform at Friday night's concert honoring Neil Young as the 2010 MusiCares Person of the Year. Also among the many A-list participants were Wilco, k.d. lang, and T Bone Burnett. There are photos from the event at grammy.com.

CAN I PURCHASE ANY CDS OF THE "3 GIRLS AND THEIR BUDDY" PEFORMANCES? IF SO, WHERE ARE THEY AVAILABLE?

Unfortunately, we are unaware of any recordings of these tour performances that have been released.

Was k.d. lang at the 2010 MusiCares Person of the Year? I could find no mention of her performance or any photos either, thanks.

Our apologies: k.d., in fact, was not able to attend the MusiCares event on Friday night as originally planned. k.d. had a scheduling conflict with another forthcoming performance event, and rather than cause more concern, she decided to withdraw from this event quietly. Sorry for the confusion.
