    Watch: The Staves, yMusic Perform on "Live From Here with Chris Thile"
    Live From Here

    The English trio The Staves—Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor (all vocals)—and New York City–based ensemble yMusic were on Live From Here with Chris Thile, broadcast live from The Town Hall in New York City to public radio stations across the United States on Saturday. The groups performed three songs from their new album, The Way Is Read, released earlier this month on Nonesuch Records: the title track, "Trouble on My Mind," and "All My Life." The Staves also joined the show's cast and other guests, including Thile, Jeff Tweedy, Sarah Jarosz, and Punch Brothers, at the end of the show to perform the Pogues' Christmas classic "Fairytale of New York." You can watch the performances below.

    You can hear the complete episode, with several Punch Brothers' performances as well—including more Christmas tunes; Wilco's "Poor Places," from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, with Jeff Tweedy; and the band's own "Clara" from their album Who's Feeling Young Now?—at livefromhere.org

    To pick up a copy of The Way Is Read, head to iTunes and the Nonesuch Store, where vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout, and listen on Spotify and Apple Music.
