KEXP presents Billy Bragg & Joe Henry performing “Rock Island Line” live in the KEXP studio. Recorded October 21, 2016.

The duo presented these tracks from their new collaboration Shine A Light: Songs From The Great American Railroad, an album inspired by the culture of American railroad travel. Over four days and 2,728 miles, the pair traveled from Los Angeles to Chicago, recording classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train paused to pick up passengers.
