Andrew Bird Covers John Prine’s ‘Souvenirs’
Bird’s clip of “Souvenirs” premiers ahead of his annual Gezelligheid (a Dutch phrase roughly meaning “cozy”) holiday concert. This year Bird will livestream the show, which usually takes place at Chicago’s Fourth Presbyterian Church, outdoors from Ojai, California. The webcast will air at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Sunday, December 13 via Performance Now! Bird is offering free passes to healthcare workers who email a photo of themselves in scrubs to GezelligheidAB@gmail.com. Head here for additional ticket info.
Bird’s cover of Prine’s “Souvenirs” sees the multi-instrumentalist on his signature fiddle with accompaniment on acoustic guitar and vocals from Alan Hampton. Watch the performance below:
