I've been listening to a lot of Andrew Bird lately. This guy is incredible. He sings, plays violin, and whistles. Yes, whistles. Although he's classically trained, his music is all over the map. From Celtic, to folk, to bluegrass. There's a charming little clip of him improvising with Yo Yo Ma on youtube. Just enter their names and do a search. A couple other singer/songwriters that are getting lots of airplay around here are: Daniel Lanois, Jeremy Fisher, Devotchka, and The Submarines. All worth looking into. Happy Saint Valentine's Day!
