Video of the Day: “O Mary Don’t You Weep”

New Orleans musician Theresa Andersson (who is actually from Sweden) has a new DVD, “Theresa Andersson: Live at Le Petit,” and it features this amazing performance of the Civil War-era spiritual “O Mary Don’t You Weep.”  Theresa is a singer and a fiddler, but on this video you can see how she’s taken her performance to the edge to deliver something really new and exciting.  She so deftly blends her live performance with the backing track that it’s truly spellbinding to watch.  “Theresa Andersson: Live at Le Petit,” with special guests including the legendary Allen Toussaint, is available now at Theresa’s website.
