The Pearl - Conor Oberst, featuring Shawn Colvin, and Patty Griffin

The video was directed by Justin Kreutzmann, and produced by Keith Wortman of Blackbird Productions.

Kreutzmann has directed a number of long-form music documentaries, including films about The Who, The Grateful Dead, guitarist Mike Campbell,; and tribute concerts honoring Jerry Gracia, Mavis Staples, and Doctor John.


The country-folk legend Emmylou Harris sang backup on a few songs from Bright Eyes’ 2005 album I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning. And last year, Bright Eyes mastermind Conor Oberst saluted his collaborator, performing as part of an all-star tribute concert to Harris. The show also featured people like Kris Kristofferson, Iron & Wine, Lucinda Williams, and Mavis Staples. Next week, that show will get a DVD and live-album release. And right now, you can watch one scene from that DVD, as Obert teams up with veteran singer-songwriters Shawn Colvin and Patty Griffin to cover “The Pearl,” a song from Harris’ 2000 album Red Dirt Girl.
