At the concert in Manhattan’s Town Hall Jack White performed a folk music version of The White Stripes ‘ ‘We’re Going To Be Friends’, assisted by banjo, fiddle and double bass. The concert was filmed for the US network Showtime, who have now released a clip of White’s performance, which you can see below. They will broadcast the concert in full next week. Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons also took part in the show, which was inspired by the forthcoming new Coen Brothers film, Inside Llewyn Davis, which is released on January 24, 2014 in the UK. The concert featured music from the T Bone Burnett-helmed soundtrack as well as the classic folk songs which inspired the movie, which is set in Greenwich Village in 1961.
