    Watch: Punch Brothers and Dierks Bentley Perform Bob Dylan's "Señor" on "Ellen"

    Punch Brothers arrive in Austin, Texas, today to make their debut at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music and Media conference. They do so in full force with eight free shows over the next three days, including The Warner Sound showcase tonight at 9 PM CT, which will stream live online at youtube.com/thewarnersound. For all the details of their SXSW onslaught, you can read yesterday’s Nonesuch Journal preview of Nonesuch artists at SXSW.

    The Austin shows follow two nights at the Bluebird Theater in Denver, Colorado, marking the end of the first leg of their North American tour with special guest Aoife O'Donovan of Crooked Still, and leading the Denver Post's Reverb to report: "The talent is undeniable. Masters at their craft, very charming and very funny."

    Following SXSW, Chris Thile will perform a number of shows with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra culminating at Carnegie Hall on March 24 and solo shows in Savannah and San Francisco in early April; for details, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour. Punch Brothers launch the second leg of their tour, featuring music from their latest Nonesuch release, Who's Feeling Young Now?, starting April 15 for Mountain Stage in West Virginia.

    Punch Brothers recently joined their friend Dierks Bentley to perform Bob Dylan’s "Señor (Tales of Yankee Power)" on The Ellen Show, which aired yesterday. Watch the performance below. It was part of the show’s ongoing celebration of Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan, a new album supporting Amnesty International and honoring its 50 anniversary. The album features a stellar and diverse group of artists across the generational and musical spectrum, including Punch Brothers and Bentley on "Señor," as well as Kronos Quartet’s performance of “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” arranged by Philip Glass, Carolina Chocolate Drops’ take on “Political World,” Billy Bragg doing “Lay Down Your Weary Tune,” and many more.

Hello,
Caught only part of your performance on the "ellen show" which screened here in New Zealand yesterday afternoon (21/3/2012) and loved it and as a huge Bob Dylan fan from way back thought the interpretation was terrific. Thank you.
So thanks for such a great performance!
All best wishes,
Garth
