One of my favorite artists is also certainly Carrie. I came to know about her about a year ago when she was on the stage of In The Woods along with Sam Baker. What immediately stood out were her beautiful voice and her inspiring and sparkling personality. When she came to The Netherlands with her own Carrie Elkin trio in September of this year (2014) and gave a show in Lage Vuursche, naturally we were there to see it. She performed with Anthony da Costa and Liondsey Verrill.
Thankfully, recordings were made which I’d like to share with you below.
First “Jesse likes birds”:
The song “Company of Friends” that was written by her husband Danny Schmidt:
And at the end of the show, with her heart and soul, she sang an a capella version of “Amazing Grace” without a microphone.
