Redwing Blackbird are from New Hampshire, which immediately endears them to my heart. They play gentle and beautiful folk music, which also immediately endears them to my heart. They've just released a new album, "That River Skinned a Bear", and the songs on their myspace are enchanting. The clear standout is "Argentina", and the live version above is absolutely amazing.
Redwing Blackbird will be playing two Chicago shows this Friday, the 17th.
5 PM show is at 1037 N. Damen, apt 3.
9 PM show is at the Ottoman Empire. I will hopefully be at this one.
