Video: Vintage Wildflowers at Kennedy Center

| | TrackBacks (1)

I mentioned getting to hear Tulsa-based Celtic music trio Vintage Wildflowers -- Melissa Schiavone (lead vocals, flute, penny whistle, banjo), Dana Maher (harp and vocals), and Abby Bozarth (five-string fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and vocals) -- on June 12, 2011, at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage. The archived hour-long video has been posted on the Kennedy Center website for your viewing pleasure and convenience.

The program included traditional Irish songs of love, heartbreak, and murder, punctuated by dry wit. There were non-traditional songs, too; for example, The Police's "Wrapped around Your Finger" and Woody Guthrie's "Pastures of Plenty." It was a fun program to see live, and it's lovely to be able to see and hear it all again.

The obvious next stop for these three is "A Prairie Home Companion."
