Edel and Ewan recorded another song in the Motherland series before the country went back into lockdown.

It will hopefully be released in 3 weeks or so.

This past weekend, I finally got to see Edel perform in Motherland (virtually, of course). That's a show I had on my list to watch out for pre-pandemic. It was going to take some good fortune for me to ever see it live and in person, but I paid attention for it just in case.

I'm glad they ultimately made it available to us online.

The band consisted of a keyboard, drums, cello, and guitar. There was a screen at the back of the stage displaying images to compliment the songs.

I greatly enjoy Ewan's arrangements and it's always an absolute pleasure to listen to Edel. It was a special treat to see her get into character during the songs. She read and acted out quotes before some of the songs as well. Edel sang a lot of different styles of music and did really well with all of them. She even channeled some country and gospel in some of the songs. The video resolution could have been a little higher, but it was good enough. The stream was stable and the audio was great.

Here's the set list from the show:

Motherland: Songs of 20th Century Women
1. Bread & Roses
2. Trouble in the Fields
3. Hard Times Come Again No More
4. Love For Sale
5. No Frontiers
6. Four Women
7. In the Ghetto
8. The Pill

9. Memories of Joan Baez (instrumental)

10. In the 1960s ... A Collection
11. She's Leaving Home
12. At Seventeen
13. Jolene
14. This Woman's Work
15. You Don't Own Me
16. Motherland
17. I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free
