Norah Plays The Basement!

Norah Jones will play to a sold out house tonight at the Ryman Auditorium, but last night she popped into a much more intimate venue. Norah stopped in The Basement on 8th Avenue.

The Dave Rawlings Machine and Gillian Welch took the stage at midnight, but at about 12:45 the Grammy Award winner took center stage between the two. Norah sang two or three songs, one of them a Townes Van Zandt cover.

Nearly 200 people (that’s a lot for the small venue) had the honor of being at her unannounced performance. There were rumors Elton John would attend as well, but he was a no show. However, rocker Meg White (White Stripes) and M. Ward (Norah’s opening act tonight) were in attendance!

Those at the show say Norah seemed very ‘at home’ hanging at a table for five. She stuck around until about 3:30 this morning!

Last time Norah came to Nashville she played the Grand Ole Opry House.
