We're celebrating FUV Essential Brandi Carlile today and getting ready to see whether her six Grammy nominations turn into trophies this Sunday. We're also feeling some pride, watching an artist whose music hit the airwaves for the first time ever on WFUV, shine so brightly. On stage is also where Brandi and the Hanseroth twins shine, so tonight on The Whole Wide World, I'm going to feature their amazing set from last year's Newport Folk Festival.

My show starts at 6 p.m., Brandi's performance will be on at 8 p.m., and of course, you can also listen to it anytime in the Vault.

[Recorded: 7/29/18; See more Newport Folk Festival coverage from WFUV and NPR Music.]
