Patty Griffin & Scrappy Jud Newcomb on the Big Bend region

On Saturday, Patty Griffin visited the KRTS Studios in advance of her benefit concert in Marfa that evening. She was joined by Scrappy Jud Newcomb.

Griffin talked about the music industry, her love of Mavis Staples, and previewed her forthcoming album, Servant Of Love. She shared a song that features Newcomb on guitar.

In this audio clip, both musicians talk about the beauty of Far West Texas.

The concert, held at El Cosmico in Marfa, is a benefit for the Big Bend Conservation Alliance, an advocacy group opposed to the planned Trans Pecos Pipeline.
