ps22 chorus

The songs of certain artists lend themselves to being covered while others just don’t.

For me, Nick Drake falls into the latter category.

Lots and lots of people have had a go at performing his tunes.

There have even been whole albums and concerts given over to the concept.

But it takes a particular musicality and even sensitivity to pull off a successful cover of a Nick song.

Which is why it’s particularly wonderful to recommend a version of ‘Northern Sky’ performed by the inspirational American children’s choir, PS22 Chorus.

The link was passed on to me by Nick’s engineer and co-producer John Wood.

Rather than tell you too much and perhaps sway your judgement, have a look and listen to the performance on YouTube.

And then check out their Facebook page.

Remarkable.
