"You'll Rise up Again (For South Africa)" by Nicolette Aubourg

BEST AMERICAN ROOTS MUSIC PERFORMANCE:
"Woodstock (In 5/4)" by Nicolette Aubourg
This is my own 5/4 time-signature version of Joni Mitchell’s song Woodstock, played live, guitar and vocals, with no edits or punch-ins.
REVIEWS: "... daring and deeply inspired. ... a brilliant tribute and subtle re-imagining of the Joni Mitchell classic. ... the bold decision to arrange the track in 5/4 is both truly courageous and rhythmically daring." - Andre Avanessian, Radio Airplay
