Saturday, July the 17th, 1pm at 2010 Dour Festival. We were nervously waiting for Mayer Hawthorne and the County, hoping that they could make it, coming from the airport right after a big flight delay. And they came to the yurt just right on time, under the sunny blue belgian sky… All the musicians plugged their instruments and got ready in no time, and played one of the most solid and lively session we recorded that day.
Enjoy this unique live session of Mayer Hawthorne & the County playing the Electric Light Orchestra’s legendary song “Mr. Blue Sky” (that most of french people might recognize because of the SFR TV ad)
And if you haven’t yet, check Mayer’s myspace, facebook or twitter page, and listen to the amazing album “A Strange Arrangement” that Mayer, aka “the heart of soul” released on Stones Throw!
