Natalie Merchant

Natalie Merchant at TED

TED is just so good.  Such a variety of specialists in so many different fields.  Today, however they have totally floated my boat by having the gorgeous Natalie Merchant – see earlier post – whom I have worshiped for years, do songs from her new album which is called Leave Your Sleep.  She puts poetry from the 19th century poets, some well known, some not, to music.  Natalie Merchant has done all manner of gorgeous things, my fave being Motherland which I own two copies of – like an insurance policy.

So here is is – lovely lovely lovely.  You should watch to the end.  Her crowd control is so funny when she has to curb their enthusiasm.
