Natalie Merchant, Troubadour
For a wonderful review of Merchant's current show in New York, read this article, "Songs from an Unrecorded Minstrel," in today's New York Times (you'll need to register to access it). I've been following Merchant since her 10,000 Maniacs days--I even attended a concert she gave at The Greek Theater in L.A. in the mid-90s, which is saying something given that I think I can count the concerts I've attended on my hands. I'd love an album of the reviewed concert--here's hoping a few good recordings make it on YouTube.
