Carrie Rodriguez plays Austin City Limits

Monday, October 6, 2008 – Austin native Carrie Rodriguez makes her first Austin City Limits appearance this month. Her performance, taped in July, will air the week of Oct. 25; the show also features Jakob Dylan.

Highlights of the set include songs from "She Ain't Me," Rodriguez's second solo album plus Never Gonna Be Your Bride and Absence. For the show, the Austin-born and Berklee trained violinist-turned-fiddler enlisted her touring band - Hans Holzen (guitar), Kyle Kegerreis (bass), Eric Platz (drums) - as well as special guests Gary Louris of the Jayhawks (background vocals, guitar), Greg Leisz (pedal & lap steel guitars) and Michael Ramos (keyboards).
