20 Sep The Handsome Family Join Andrew Bird Live On Facebook
Brett & Rennie from The Handsome Family recently featured in Andrew Bird’s Facebook Live series Live From The Great Room.
Andrew has long been a friend and collaborator of The Handsome Family, with covers of their songs having appeared on several of his albums, in addition to his album, Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of… – a full album’s worth of Handsome Family covers.
“Hearing Andrew’s version of our songs feels like suddenly spotting a new and shining doorway in the midst of a room I have spent my life in”, says Rennie. “It’s like finding a stairway in the forest leading upward to the sky. His recasting of our work gives me the strange and wonderful pleasure of understanding my own songs better by hearing him perform them.”
