You really have to love La Blogotheque. Their "Un Concert A Emporter" series is just absolute top notch, and they recently honoured their 50th show by presenting 30 minutes worth of music and video gathered at April's MusicNOW Festival in Cincinnati. The pick of the bunch though is this Sufjan performance; a solo banjo rendition of "The Lakes Of Canada", an Innocence Mission cover from their 1999 album Birds Of My Neighboorhood. The warmth of Sufjan's vocal delivery and careful banjo play make a nonsense of the harsh winds that blow atop the roof. Just lovely.
