Andrew Bird

Question of the Day: Birds

by Corny O'Connell

Tonight at 9 we've got Andrew Bird (and guest Tift Merritt) in an intimate concert for WFUV's marquee members. That got us to thinking about songs mentioning birds. There's a whole gaggle of them to choose from. Lay a few in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Richard Shindell "There Goes Mavis"

Neville Brothers "Bird On A Wire"

It's A Beautiful Day "White Bird"

Andrew Bird performs an FUV Live concert at Rockwood Music Hall with special guest Tift Merritt. They played the title track from Andrew's latest release, I Want to See Pulaski at Night, as well as a bunch of classic Bird songs and some covers too. I also got a chance to talk with Andrew about the new EP and his new perspective on touring.

One man band Andrew Bird quickly became known for his violin playing and distinct whistle, but over the course of ten albums, has used both instruments to expand rather than limit his sound. Tonight, he talks with Claudia Marshall about his latest collection of songs, called 'Armchair Apocrypha.'
