The Voice Project is a nonprofit that raises awareness about the civil war in Northern Uganda, and it also posts videos of artists covering other artists. In the clip below, Andrew Bird takes on Cass McCombs‘ “Meet Me Here at Dawn”, with Priscilla Ahn helping out on harmonies.
It’s a sweetly ramshackle version, the two working out the song as they go along. It just so happens that Bird is exceedingly good at lazy afternoon cover versions like this one, and that the song is pretty perfectly suited to both voices. And yes, Bird whistles. Watch the clip below.
