Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Theresa Andersson

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

This song was last week's subject. With a new generation of artists who, for the most part, were born after those whose work was "discovered" in the 1960s folk boom passed on, folk music is being taken to new directions. This example stays true to its roots, as it extends new branches. Theresa Andersson performed this song live at Le Petit Theatre, as one reviewer put it: “... playing a violin both pizzicato and arco at the same time, and controlling her sample/capture/mix/replay circuitry with her feet like Bach playing a pedal organ.”

The DVD of this performance is available at
