New York, NY (February 22, 2011)— The Emmy-nominated show connects music fans with an incredible, curated line up of icons and rising stars performing in unique and intimate venues. The exciting new season features Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, Ray LaMontagne, Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, Squeeze, Daniel Merriweather, A Fine Frenzy, and Lisa Hannigan.

Before his Artists Den taping at Nashville's War Memorial Theater, rock icon Robert Plant commented, "To work your craft, you've got to be close in with your musicians, so I enjoy intimacy now. I can't say that I'd be in a hurry to go to Madison Square Garden again."

"This year's lineup offers the depth and variety of talent that our viewers expect. This series continues to showcase our mission to provide the best arts programming to the public in creative, innovative ways."
