Video of the week: Amanda Shires’ NPR Tiny Desk Concert

I’ve been enamored with the music of Amanda Shires since her 2009 debut, and her latest album Carrying Lightning, released earlier this year, is another batch of Dolly/Emmylou 70’s country-inspired great tunes. NPR recently featured her and playing partner Rod Picott in one of their “Tiny Desk Concert” videos, and it’s a wonderful introduction to Shires’ music and voice.

  1. i’m a big fan of amanda shires and was SO looking forward to this video. but, at least for me, it wont stream for more than 3 seconds at a time- then sit for 8-10 seconds. i’m blaming it on my player…. i guess. ~j~
