Punch Brothers, who performed "This Girl" on Later Live ... with Jools Holland on BBC Two last Tuesday, were also featured on the full, one-hour broadcast of Later on Friday night. For that show, the band performed "Movement and Location," another track off their new album, Who's Feeling Young Now?, released earlier this year on Nonesuch Records. Also on the show were Plan B, Django Django, Ren Harvieu, Melody Gardot, and Tom Jones. Watch Punch Brothers' performance below.
A couple weeks back, Punch Brothers' US tour brought them to Charleston, South Carolina, for a performance at The Music Farm. While in town, the band stopped by the offices of Garden & Gun to inaugurate the magazine's new web series, The Back Porch Sessions, performing The Band's "The Weight." Recorded not long after Levon Helm lost his battle with cancer, it's a moving tribute to the beloved musician and a great performance at that. You can watch it below as well, via Garden & Gun.
Punch Brothers resume their US tour with a performance at Appalachian Uprising festival in Scottstown, Ohio, on June 2. For additional tour information and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
