2011 Year in Pictures
Live from the Artists Den presented a remarkable line-up of artists on iconic stages around the country in 2011. “There’s something for every music fan in our new season,” said Creator and Executive Producer Mark Lieberman. The year began with Robert Plant and the Band of Joy bringing their signature folk-rock sound to the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, a show which aired as part of last year’s broadcast season.
Adele kicked off the new season for an intimate crowd at the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club, just days after the release of her record-breaking album, 21. The year continued with a fantastic set by The Fray, which included the Grammy-nominated hits “How to Save a Life” and “Over My Head (Cable Car),” at Manhattan’s incomparable Angel Orenasanz Center, and indie-rock favorites Death Cab for Cutie, who appeared at the grandiose Beaux-Arts Court at the Brooklyn Museum during the tour for their newest album, Codes and Keys.
Kid Rock made history with a high-powered Artists Den performance, surrounded by Elvis Presley’s vintage car collection at Graceland in Memphis. Epic sets by singer-songwriter Amos Lee in Tucson and an eleven-piece iteration of Iron & Wine, in front of a lively Atlanta crowd, provided a fitting end to a spectacular year.
