Watch: Preservation Hall Jazz Band on Letterman



Last night, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Del McCoury Band appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman to perform the bluegrass-gospel hymn "I'll Fly Away," one of the standout tracks from this year's American Legacies. Clint Maedgen and Del McCoury trade verses, and their respective bands take solo turns.

The groups — the New Orleans jazz institution and the bluegrass legend — banded together for the album American Legacies, a tour of Appalachian folk via traditional New Orleans brass. (Stream it here, or score a free download of "One More 'Fore I Die" here.)
