Tonight, our mvy LIVE was a set from Josh Ritter at Newport Folk Festival, 2009. Listening back reminded me of how much I adore this amazing singer/songwriter…and how phenomenal he is live in concert. He performs this stunning song during his live set at Newport. **YOU CAN LISTEN TO THAT SET HERE.
Tonight we featured a live performance from Yim Yames at Newport Folk 2010 for our mvy LIVE. I really enjoyed hearing this set, since I didn’t catch much of it when I was working backstage at Newport… and you can hear it too, along with a bunch of other Newport performances, in our Archives. His rendition of “Golden” reminded me how much I love that song. Here’s MMJ doing it live on Letterman:
Since I started working at mvyradio, I’ve been slowly digging through the archived live performances on our website. Over a year later, and I’ve barely made a dent! There are more than 700 performances and interviews in the archives at mvyradio.com and it’s all there for you to enjoy free of charge! I’ve decided to feature some of my favorite tunes out of the mvy archives here on my blog once and a while. I’ll also be hosting an hour-long Hot Seat on Monday full of archived performances (more on that later).
Today I want to share a live version of a fun tune called “Monkey” from the duo Two Loons For Tea…recorded right here at the mvy studios.
