NEW YORK--Non-commercial public radio station WFUV (90.7 FM, will broadcast Creators at Carnegie: The Friends of Emmylou Harris on Wednesday, October 27 at 8:00 PM. 

When Harris's peers and protégés gathered at Carnegie Hall's Zankel hall for a week of live concerts last October, WFUV was on hand to record the festivities. The radio program's first hour features singer-songwriter Patty Griffin and the hardest working husband-and-wife team in Nashville, Buddy and Julie Miller.  In the second hour of the show, iconoclastic guitarist Steve Earle is followed onstage by French Canadian siblings Kate and Anna McGarrigle.  Joining the McGarrigles on several songs is Kate's son, singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright.  The program is hosted by WFUV Music Director Rita Houston and NPR's Fred Child.

Creators at Carnegie is a new series of 13 monthly concert broadcasts from the inaugural season of Zankel Hall, Carnegie Hall's resurrected "third stage." The series, set to begin in January 2004, is produced by NPR, Carnegie Hall and Nonesuch Records and sponsored by Smith Barney. Hosted by NPR's Fred Child with contributions from music hosts at New York-area NPR member stations, Creators focuses on artists with powerful creative voices, from John Adams to Caetano Veloso to Emmylou Harris.  Their performances are at the center of each broadcast, punctuated by comments from stage and brief first person narratives and interviews that focus on the creative process.
