Patty Griffin & Scrappy Jud Newcomb at the KRTS Studios, August 22, 2015.

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.
