World Cafe Playlist for 07/10/2020

Rufus Wainwright joins host Raina Douris

Since his breakout debut in the mid-90s, Rufus Wainwright has always been an artist with a flair for the dramatic – He’s even written operas. And today, he brings that charisma and stage presence to the first-ever World Cafe session recorded in front of a live, virtual audience, performing songs from his new album, Unfollow The Rules. Plus, Rufus will share about moving back to Los Angeles where his career began, and we’ll learn about one of the new songs that’s an homage to the music of his friend, Joni Mitchell.
