Reggie Watts joins Andrew Bird for season finale of “Live from the Great Room” today

Reggie Watts will join Andrew Bird for the final episode of the first season of “Live from the Great Room,” a new, ongoing series of Facebook Live performances. Streamed live from Bird’s home, the weekly series puts the creative process on display for fans as Bird performs and converses with friends and collaborators in a candid, intimate setting. The first season’s guests have included Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Chris Thile, Blake Mills, John C. Reilly and Tom Brosseau. The series’ popularity has grown throughout the season, with the most recent episode with Chris Thile attracting more than 105,000 total views, reaching over one million people.

Watts and Bird will broadcast live today, Tuesday, July 26, at 1:30 p.m. PT.

“I’m not exactly a social media maven, but I’ve stumbled on an online format that I can get with,” says Bird of the new series. “Going out via Facebook Live, I bring in musicians that I think will push me into interesting territory. I’ve always been about showing the process and the never ending quest to get to the heart of a song, and there’s something casual about this whole thing that’s appealing.”
