Recently I have found the homepage of the famous Prairie Home Companion Radio Show. It is possible to listen to the complete shows from previous years in the archive.
On the page I found a link to the interview with Sara Watkins. Sara Watkins was a member of the famous bluegrass band Nickel Creek with Chris Thile on the mandolin and her brother Sean Watkins.
Sara Watkins has just produced her solo CD which was produced by John Paul Jones – and in this interview Sara tells about the work with John Paul Jones.
Here is the link to the interview:
With the interview there are some songs that Sara played during the Prairie Home Companion shows and that are also included on her latest CD. The first song is Pony, a song composed by Tom Waits – Sara plays a ukulele to accompany herself on this song – here is a video of another performance of Pony:

Nickel Creek vocalist and fiddler Sara Watkins stops by the WTMD studios to perform selections from her self-titled solo album.
Another great song is her own composition My Friend, also played with ukulele:
