Guest appearances



You don't see a lot of him. The camera shoots over him, so you only see a head and shoulder. But it's a funny clip to see. (I think).

Joe Henry, first on his own and then backing Bonnie Raittt on his "You Can't Fail Me Now." Sigh.

Rodney Crowell read a touching letter from Don Everly, too deep in mourning to be there this night, and then duetted with Joe Henry on the most movingly heartbreaking "Cathy's Clown" you could imagine.

  • Covered boxer by Paul Simon on a tribute night in March 2014

In an Australian interview Joe names this performances as 1 of his 3 highlights as a performing artist. 
Lastly, I’ll offer that performing at Carnegie Hall in New York this past spring as part of a benefit concert celebrating the songs of Paul Simon was a highlight. I sang The Boxer in a stripped-down trio setting with Kenneth Pattengale (of The Milk Carton Kids) on second guitar and backing vocals, and my son Levon on clarinet; all of us crowded around a single microphone. Walking out onto that stage with my son –standing on boards previously occupied by the likes of Louis Armstrong, Lead Belly, Edith Piaf, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Harry Belafonte, etc.– was quite an exceptional sensation.

  • Joe was a guest on the 'Voices of a People's history' event. Together with Carl Restivo and Tom Morello he performed Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land”
