What Made Your Year? Erin McKeown Gives Us Her Answer

Tuesday, December 08, 2009

Singer/songwriter Erin McKeown has had a busy 2009.  She plays about 200 live shows a year and just released her eighth album, Hundreds of Lions. But it was going to someone else's concert that made a mark on her personally.

Last June, McKeown went to see  Amy Ray perform to a packed house at the Bowery Ballroom.

"She has a new solo album out and put together a fabulous band," McKeown says. "At the end, she got up and asked if I would play guitar on one of my favorite songs of her's, and that was a real pleasure."
