Norah Jones Kicks Off New Season of "Live from the Artists Den" Friday 

Adam Macchia/ArtistsDen.comThe fifth season of the music series Live from the Artists Den debuts Friday night on PBS, and the first artist to be featured is Norah Jones.  The show features icons and emerging artists performing at unique and historic venues, and Norah's is no exception.  Her performance was filmed at The Green Building in Brooklyn, New York, a former brass foundry built in 1889 that's been turned into a multi-use space.

At the taping, Norah said, "People are always asking me what place I love to play the most.  I always say it's really not about the country as much as it is the venue.  It's so nice to play in a place that has a good vibe."  You'll see Norah and her band run through a 20-song set that includes everything from her breakthrough hit "Don't Know Why" to her most recent hit "Happy Pills."

The first airing of the episode will take place at 10 p.m. ET on New York City's WNET, but will then air at various times and on various days throughout the month.  Visit ArtistsDen.com or the show's Facebook page for premiere dates and air times.

Norah will also be seen October 23 on the new season of the Sundance Channel series Iconoclasts, which pairs up creative people for discussions about their lives and their work.  In the episode, Norah is paired with Family Guy creator and next year's Oscar host, Seth McFarlane.  Norah also appeared in McFarlane's movie Ted as herself.
