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.

Her website has some clips of her music:
