The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger

Sunday, April 03, 2011

As you might guess from the band's name, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger makes songs that are ornate, fanciful, tuneful, and unusual. It's a collaborative duo featuring Sean Lennon (son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono) and his partner in life and music, Charlotte Kemp Muhl. They play multiple instruments, and sing in harmony about elegant gardens, dystopian futures, striving scientists, a smarmy impresario, and much more. Host David Garland brings them to the WNYC Studio for lively conversation and performances.

I was listening to WQXR while driving in my car and heard the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet play Scotish Songs starting with "Skye Boat Song" at about 7:50 pm Sunday, Apr 3. I could not find any reference to it in your scheduling for today online. Can you help? I would like to purchase the recording.
