Jim James joins Marcus Mumford onstage at the Brown Theater

Andrew Bruss/Eric Ray Davidson

It was a mini-reunion of The New Basement Tapes last night at the Brown Theatre.

Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford was in town promoting his new solo album (self-titled) and brought out one of our favorite locals to join him on three songs-- My Morning Jacket's Jim James!

Fresh from his WFPK Members Only performance earlier in the day, James contributed to a trio of tracks from the 2014 album Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes, which saw James and Mumford, along with Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens and Taylor Goldsmith, putting their spin on some then-recently uncovered Bob Dylan lyrics.

One of those songs, "Kansas City", was captured by a fan at the Brown last night.
