Theresa Andersson is pleased to announce the release of her first live concert DVD, “Theresa Andersson: Live at Le Petit.” Recorded on February 28, 2010 at The Le Petit Theatre in New Orleans and directed by Bridget Palardy (Be Your Own Pet, The Plastiscines, Nylon TV), the DVD features the legendary New Orleans musician Allen Toussaint, and extra bonus interview footage of Theresa. The DVD will be available exclusively at her shows, and at TheresaAndersson.com. Theresa just finished a series of live appearances at New Orleans JazzFest in April.
It’s hard not to marvel at how far Theresa has come in such a short period of time. A little under two years ago, Theresa was setting up a webcam in her kitchen to capture her new “one-woman band” for a few close friends and relatives. The kitchen video of “Na Na Na” quickly spread across YouTube, garnering nearly a million views within a week of it’s debut. Now, almost two years later, Theresa Andersson again set up cameras to film her impressive performance — this time in one of the most historic theaters in America.
Directed by Bridget Palardy, the DVD features music from Hummingbird, Go!, along with her own renditions of songs like the spiritual “Oh Mary”(check out a video clip here), Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young’s “Find the Cost of Freedom,” and a special duet with Allen Toussaint on “On Your Way Down.” The DVD also features an interview with Theresa as she explores her adopted home of New Orleans, where she explains how she ended up moving to New Orleans two decades ago, the origin of her “one-woman band,” and a tributes to her musical influences.
