Theresa Andersson: Birds Fly Away

Theresa Andersson singing Birds Fly Away in a video apparently filmed in New Orleans.

While checking You Tube for Louisiana musicians today, I ran across the videos of Theresa Andersson. You can tell she enjoys singing and being on stage.

She was born in 1972 in Gotland, Sweden. She left Sweden in 1990 to play the violin, in a band in New Orleans, with Swede  Anders Osborne.

After leaving the band nine years later, she began singing with New Orleans musicians. She performed with The Neville Brothers, Allan Toussaint, Betty Harris and The Meters.

Theresa Andersson performing at the 2007 Jazz Festival in this very short clip. She has an infectious smile and had the crowd in the palm of her hands.

Theresa being interviewed in Austin, Texas and she tells about meeting Allen Toussaint.

Her website has some clips of her music:
