PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Tony Winner Steve Kazee Picks His Favorite Indie-Rock and Alt-Country Songs
09 Apr 2014
"Michigan Girls" (Califone). I saw this band open for Wilco at one of my first-ever NYC concerts back in 2002. I was blown away when I walked in and saw what looked like my dad's friends setting up on stage. Once they started playing though, I was transported back to growing up in a place full of music and musicians who were mysteries to the rest of the world crowing, picking and playing until the sun comes up. It came on as I was making this list, and fate felt they deserved a place on it. I was happy to oblige.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
