Ben Kyle of Romantica duets with Carrie Rodriguez
Thanks to Jim Walsh over at MinnPost, my Monday morning got a whole lot sweeter when I clicked on the link for this heart-wrenching video of Romantica's Ben Kyle singing "Danny Boy" with his current tour mate Carrie Rodriguez. I've always been a huge Romantica fan, but Kyle seems to shine especially bright when his performances are stripped down to just his voice and guitar. This performance is no exception -- with only a soft guitar strum to guide him, Kyle's voice cracks with a vulnerability and tenderness that makes even this oft-covered tune mesmerizing.
