Combine a top music act with an intimate, often historic but unconventional performance space -- great idea! -- and you get the compelling American Public Television series "Live From the Artists Den." It made its debut in 2009 and is still going strong, simply because the performers enjoy playing in much smaller settings, and fans as well love the up-close and personal nature of the shows. Among the many concerts "Artists Den" has featured are Elvis Costello at the New York Public Library; Robert Plant at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn.; The Black Crowes at the Lyric Oxford in Mississippi; Adele at Santa Monica Bay Woman's Club; Soundgarden at The Wiltern in Los Angeles; Kid Rock at Graceland; and Norah Jones at the Green Building in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Gary Clark Jr. - For Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr. it was an emotional homecoming in the club he legitimately calls "home" - Austin's legendary "Home Of The Blues," Antone's Nightclub. Clark first played Antone's as a fifteen-year-old obsessed with blues history and now he's both one of the most respected and revered artists in blues and R&B, and in a full-circle move, a part-owner of the club's latest iteration. His 20-song set for a crowd of 350 invited guests for the season finale of Live from the Artists Den featured songs from his 2012 breakthrough Blak and Blu and last year's genre-bending follow-up, The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim. Among the highlights of a night filled with fiery, jaw-dropping guitar heroism and bright flashes of a gorgeous falsetto, a loud, muscular take on "Bright Lights" and a supremely funky meditation on the impact of music, "The Healing."
