Simone Dinnerstein and Tift Merritt come from separate musical worlds. Dinnerstein is a classical pianist known for her interpretations of music by Bach, and Merritt is a singer-songwriter known for her sweet voice and emotionally precise lyrics.

But the two musicians admired each other's work and became friends; eventually they became musical collaborators as well.

Dinnerstein and Merritt join host Fred Child in the studio to discuss their musical collaboration and to perform several songs from their album Night.
