I don't use Facebook (nor any social media platform). Consequently videos that need a sign-in or subscription are closed to me. Shame. I buy all the music but can't access the interesting free stuff.

    'Tis the season to be jolly with holiday songs! To add our merry to the mix, we've created Nonesuch for the Holidays, a playlist of holiday tunes both classic and soon-to-be-so from The Staves, Chris Thile, Emmylou Harris, Kate & Anna McGarrigle with family and friends, Boston Camerata with eight centuries of Christmas music from Medieval to Renaissance to Baroque, and, of course, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, performed by the New York City Ballet Orchestra—plus, on Spotify, an exclusive from Rostam.

    Chris Thile was joined by fellow Punch Brothers Chris Eldridge and Noam Pikelny as they sat in with the band on his radio show Live From Here at The Town Hall in NYC on Saturday. For a post-broadcast encore, they performed "My Oh My," from Punch Brothers' album The Phosphorescent Blues, with guest Jon Batiste. You can watch it here. Also on the show were St. Vincent (with Thomas Bartlett on piano) and Sara Watkins.
