Mississippi buddies Jake Xerxes Fussell and William Tyler reunited on stage at Duke Gardens in Durham, NC this week in the sweltering heat, each playing sets from their most recent solo albums and joining each other for Willy T’s “Highway Anxiety,” the traditional “Star Girl” (from Jake’s s/t album, produced by Willy), Nick Lowe‘s “I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass,” and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band‘s summertime classic “Fishin’ in the Dark,” among others. What a perfect evening. These two need a variety TV show together.

Thanks to Duke Performances and the Independent Weekly and videographer Dan Schram for the concert and the video.
