Theresa Andersson may be Swedish, but she has Americana deep in her bones. So, it’s fitting that she uprooted herself from Scandinavia and planted her flag deep in New Orleans at age 18 to play her fiddle with Anders Osborne. On “Oh Mary”, a classic black spiritual from the pre-Civil War era that Mike Farris recently virtually claimed as his own in a smokin’ version, Andersson takes a jazzier, but still soulful approach to the tune. She loops her emotive fiddle licks through a synthesizer and does the same thing with her voice towards the end to achieve a choral effect. This clip is from the recent DVD release Theresa Andersson: Live at Le Petit, available at theresaandersson.com.
