Days ago, presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton selected Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her Vice Presidential running mate. The musical former Virginia governor is purportedly a fan of Frank Zappa and is a proficient harmonica player. This week’s installment of Sunday Cinema features the possible next Veep playing harmonica with a member of the Dave Matthews Band back when he was governor in 2009.
DMB fiddle player Boyd Tinsley performed at an event for Kaine’s Moving Virginia Forward PAC at Maymont Park in Richmond on May 21, 2009. Charlottesville-based guitarists Travis Elliott and Tucker Rogers joined Tinsley for a set that saw the then Gov. join in on harmonica and vocals. Kaine and the trio covered Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” and the traditional hymn “Will The Circle Be Unbroken.”
Video footage from the 2009 event of Kaine performing alongside Tinsley can be seen in the videos below.
