The Baird Sisters Live on WFMU

Live performance and chat with The Baird Sisters (Meg: vocals & guitar, Laura: vocals, banjo & flute)
Back in 2012, Laura Baird recorded a lovely album of acoustic guitar and banjo tunes in her living room with her sister Meg. "Until You Find Your Green" was released independently then, but now the BaDaBing! label is giving the wider distribution it deserves. Laura has performed and recorded a lot with Guitarist Glenn Jones and in solo settings. Meg has had her own stellar career with Espers, Heron Oblivion and as a solo artist. The Baird Sisters had a free day following a brief East Coast tour to play live on Irene's show.

Someday - we FMUvians will have our own Island.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Irene Trudel:

It's meant for loud listening, Van!
Avatar 9:14pm ranjit:

"The Victory" bugs me because the melody keeps being almost "All Around My Hat" and then veering off.
Avatar 9:14pm Van in DC:

I am honoring that :)
Avatar 9:14pm Van in DC:

oh wow. What a segue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Irene Trudel:

I know Ranjit, but it's still a great epic.

What a superb greeting.
  11:14pm herb.nyc:

Thanks Marselle and KP! Herb, I don't know about Dillon.
Avatar 11:20pm Van in DC:
