Video: Kathleen Edwards talks "giant boner for Durham," collaborates with Mandolin Orange

Posted by on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 at 5:20 PM

"I really wish I hadn't written this song because I kind of have a giant boner for Durham," said Canadian singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards as she transitioned into "Empty Threat," the first song of her most recent release Voyageur, Friday night at the Haw River Ballroom. The song revolves around the idea of her moving to America but not wanting to do so.

Despite it being her first performance at the venue, Edwards continuously heaped praise on the room and venue co-owner Heather LaGarde. Edwards played a nearly two-hour set, featuring selections from each of her albums. Jim Bryson and Gord Tough provided accompaniment.

Earlier in the evening, Mandolin Orange moved quickly through their opening set, offering several new songs including "The Turtle Dove and the Crow."

The evening ended with an off-the-microphone performance by both trios singing Neil Young's "From Hank to Hendrix."

Why does this piece call Maceo Parker a master funk bass man when he plays saxophone?

Last paragraph is just more proof there is a double standard when it comes to justice.
