Stephen Colbert ‏ @StephenAtHome

Tonight, Don Fleming, Emmylou Harris & Elvis Costello are here to talk about preserving the world's folk music. That is so punk rock!

That was really interesting. Here's the 3 segments, no commercials, in one HD clip:

EC rockin' the 4-string guitar, then a ukulele-like instrument at the end. Here's the web exclusive full version of Goodnight Irene:

EC's voice is in very fine form right now. Just in time for another round of SSS shows!

Thanks for posting this. Pretty neat stuff.

Elvis and Colbert are getting along famously these days. If you're going to have a friend high up in the business, Colbert seems like a pretty darn good one to have.

Received an excited near late night call from my middle daughter last evening ordering me to turn on the tube- she being a Colbert fan- pleasantly surprised to encounter this. I appreciate it when he lets his 'hair' down and plays the archivist. Should be doing this more often on his own program. They make a passing good imitation of the Weavers and I am reasonably certain Mr. Seeger[in my town] would have enjoyed their version and would more than likely have grabbed his banjo and joined in given the opportunity.

Thankyou for this link etc.

We can't in England, UK, Europe get full Colbert web-show, so if anyone could share e.g. mp3 of colbertnation.com FULL versions of 3 Costello songs (e.g. Goodnight Irene), quite a few more would be pleased/grateful.

Fine topic/some of us in England - blah blah - share folk-stuff (e.g. Fred Wedlock doing Goodnight Irene...).

Will we ever see Elvis without a hat again? Even to acknowledge an audience? I think it's glued on these days.
