An Andrew Bird concert takes on a variety of moods and musical styles, as he wends his way through his songs – blues, French cabaret, Beatlesque pop, Gypsy jazz, Afrobeat, straight ahead rock.
His primary instrument is the violin, and utilizing looping, he concocts imaginative, heady songs with it. He’s a fine singer, an excellent songwriter and a virtuoso whistler. That’s right, he whistles. Not just like the “The Andy Griffith Show Theme” kind of casual whistling, either. No, Bird is the Caruso of whistling.
His latest project is the soundtrack to the indie film, “Norman,” which you can hear on his Facebook page. A new Bird album is slated for release in early 2012.
