The Be Good Tanyas - The Coo Coo Bird

Canadian folk group The Be Good Tanyas has released three fine albums to date, and on their 2000 debut Blue Horse they did the old folk song "The Coo Coo Bird". Originally an English folk song, "The Coo Coo Bird" or "The Cockoo" or any other variation thereof, has traveled far and wide, and among "newer" artists who have performed it are Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Richard Thompson, Laura Veirs, The Everly Brothers, Janis Joplin and many, many more. The Be Good Tanyas' version is gorgeous, laidback and a bit eerie with an especially beautiful violin.
