Fiona Apple threw it way back on Friday when she joined folky Americana band/collective Watkins Family Hour on the latest NPR Tiny Desk Concert to perform a pair of very old-school folk songs.

The first, “In The Pines,” has roots to the post-Civil War era and has been performed by an innumerable amount of artists, including Nirvana for its landmark Unplugged gig in 1993. “I really like to sing it,” Apple said before. “It’s one of our favorites to do,” full-time band member Sean Watkins added.

Afterward, they tackled “Hop High,” which Apple provided background vocals (and dancing) for.

The Watkins Family Hour released its debut self-titled album, which features Apple, last summer.
