Shearwater




Watching Shearwater live is a bit like watching musical chairs. In addition to their own instruments the original band members play each other’s and additional hand-made instruments as well. On their new album, “The Golden Archipelago,” their beautiful sparseness remains, but the music is more epic in scale and scope. Watch as they have the crowd at Johnny Brenda’s entranced at first song.
