Songwriters' Circle: Joe Ely, John Hiatt and Lyle Lovett

15.10.10 This session of the specially-created concerts for BBC FOUR in which three singer-songwriters take it in turns to play their signature works, chat about their songs and collaborate muscially features three of the best exponents of Americana - Texans Lyle Lovett and Joe Ely and Indiana's John Hiatt.

All three draw on country, rock 'n' roll, blues and soul influences to craft their own characteristic sound, each with their own distinctive lyrical voice. Lyle Lovett performs classics like If I Had a Boat and My Baby Don't Tolerate; John Hiatt plays some of his strongest and most covered work including Thing Called Love and Have a Little Faith In Me; and Joe Ely, who flew in especially for the show from his home town of Lubbock, Texas and tells his share of good stories, performs Me and Billy the Kid, Honky Tonk Masquerade and more.
