Willie Nelson at Rothbury

Along with Dylan, Willie Nelson was a major highlight of the Rothbury Festival this year. Also along with Dylan, he's a veteran performer with a vast catalog who's really make use of it. His live shows are like a moving animal, twisting and turning in unexpected ways. Willie seems to grab songs out of the air, spin then around a few times, then move onto the next one. On top of that the arrangements are super low-key, Paul English playing only a snare, no kit. The guy's a legend and he's still in his prime.
