My library book is so overdue that I'm expecting to get in a lot of trouble later

New York, NY --The third season of the innovative music series Live from
the Artists Den will premiere nationwide on public television beginning

backed by his band, The Sugarcanes, at The New York Public Library’s
world-famous Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. The show airs nationally on
public television. Check local listings or

“My library book is so overdue that I’m expecting to get in a lot of
trouble later,” Elvis Costello said with a smile before his show at The
New York Public Library. He went on to say, “There’s something
definitely different about playing in New York Public Library. There’s
not many venues I play that have big stone lions outside.”

Elvis Costello’s episode is the result of a private concert he performed
on November 2, 2010 for 500 lucky fans in celebration of his new album's
release that day. Within the ornate and awe-inspiring Celeste Bartos
Forum, Costello – along with The Sugarcanes and Pete Thomas on drums –
performed new songs from National Ransom as well as hits spanning his
three-decades-and-counting career.

Live from the Artists Den is an Emmy-nominated TV series connecting
music fans with a curated lineup of icons and rising stars performing in
unique and intimate venues.  The exciting new season also features
Robert Plant, Ray LaMontagne, Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, Squeeze,
Daniel Merriweather, A Fine Frenzy, and Lisa Hannigan. A Public
Television Rocks! presentation, the series is a co-production of Artists
Den Entertainment and WLIW21 in association with WNET New York Public
Media and distributed by American Public Television.

The Sugarcanes are: Jerry Douglas (dobro), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Mike
Compton (mandolin), Jeff Taylor (accordion), Dennis Crouch (double
bass), and Jim Lauderdale (acoustic guitar).
