Deep Night Season 10: Live with Kate Willett and Friends Who Folk

Dale strums his psychic banjo and summons almost everyone he thought would appear for another live edition of the program. This show is a lesson in sometimes things don’t go as planned and also sometimes people cancel as the show is happening. It’s all part of the unbridled Deep Night experience. This magical realm is full of surprises and this night is no different. Luckily, Dale is aided throughout the evening by his exceptionally talented guests, comedian Kate Willett (Netflix, Comedy Central) and Friends Who Folk (Ars Nova, The New Yorker). Kate and Dale pull an especially bad tarot card which may have been a kind signal that things were going to go in a new direction. They also talk about living in polyamorous communes and bad sex in tents, because of course they have that in common. Friends Who Folk offer not one, not two, but three amazing songs, as the show hurdles toward its conclusion. The duo, comprised of Rachel Wenitsky (Reductress) and Ned Riseley (Six Degress of Separation) also share some of their thoughts about the modern folk scene and the things that go wrong when you drink from a gourd. Plus – listen for the big reveal of Dale’s bedazzled turtleneck. And special thanks to our sponsors, The Gowanus Souvenir Shop.

Kate Willett just landed a 15 minute comedy special on Netflix, so catch her around town or on tour as she hones her material for that. Friends Who Folk perform regularly in NY and have recently launched their own website https://www.friendswhofolk.com/ with info and touring dates. Thanks to all who came out to The Slipper Room for another cleansing dip in the vast and unpredictable, Deep Night.
