I’m a big fan of NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series. I’ve found it a great (and FREE) way to be introduced to wonderful new music.
SO… In honor of International Women’s Day, which was earlier this week, I count down my ten favorite Tiny Desk Concerts featuring women musicians!
#1 – Natalie Merchant
This was truly one of the most warmhearted Tiny Desk performances I’ve ever seen. She sang the title track from 2001’s Motherland, “Texas” from that self-titled 2014 release and something from Tigerlily, and then Merchant had the NPR audience join her for a beautiful hymn heard on The House Carpenter’s Daughter — so have a tissue handy.
