Emmylou Harris appear on today's episode of NPR's World Cafe, talking with the show's host, David Dye, and performing a few favorite tunes, including "Love Hurts," which she famously performed with Gram Parsons back in the early 1970s, and the title track off her Nonesuch debut album, Red Dirt Girl. Harris and frequent collaborator and touring partner Buddy Miller were featured on the show as part of its salute this week to the 2010 Cayamo Cruise. World Cafe was on board the Cayamo as Harris, Miller, and a host of great songwriter/performers played for a very lucky crowd at sea for the music festival cum Caribbean cruise earlier this year.
Harris and Miller are due to perform together again next month at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville for the Music Saves Mountains benefit concert, presented by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Chris Thile and Brad Mehldau were the guests on NPR's World Cafe. They spoke with host David Dye and performed three songs from their just-released debut duo album together: Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright," David Rawling and Gillian Welch's "Scarlet Town," and Elliott Smith's "Independence Day." "It is extraordinary," says host Dye of the new album. "Two players from different genres, bluegrass and jazz, further the thinking that genres are just not that important to improvisers."
