While on tour supporting his latest record, Upside Down Mountain, singer-songwriter Conor Oberst was joined on-stage by Monsters of Folk bandmate/My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James at a show in Lexington, Kentucky.

James, a Ketucky native, first popped up during Dawes’ opening set to play guitar on “Peace In The Valley”, and later returned to join Oberst for “At The Bottom Of Everything”, a track which James provided guest vocals for on Bright Eyes’ I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning. All three acts then joined forces for an epic folk-rock jam on Oberst’s “Roosevelt Room”.

Watch fan footage of both performances below.

Oberst will start his tour up again this July, with appearances at Newport Folk Festival andCorona Capital. See his full dates here.
