Winter Marquee is a live album by folk singer Nanci Griffith. Recorded live during the Clock Without Hands tour in spring 2002, this album grew from the original wish to capture just one live song (Phil Ochs' "What's That I Hear") into a 14-track live CD album,[4] Griffith's first live recording since One Fair Summer Evening (1988). On May 29, 2002, at the historic Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville,[5] a live performance was filmed, and released on DVD under the same name. During the recording of both the album and the DVD, Griffith was joined on stage by Emmylou Harris, Tom Russell and Andrew Hardin.
