Friday Flashback "Black Horse and The Cherry Tree"

Thanks to YouTUBE, I'm going to post a music video every Friday... just for kicks.

Here's a live performance of KT Tunstall - "Black Horse and The Cherry Tree" where she sings solo with loops and a variety of instruments.

well my heart knows me better than i know myself
so i'm gonna let it do all the talking.
i came across a place in the middle of nowhere
with a big black horse and a cherry tree.

About KT Tunstall from Wikipedia:
Kate "KT" Tunstall is a Scottish singer-songwriter from Fife. Her mother is of partial Chinese descent, and her father Irish. She was raised by adoptive parents, scientists who did not own a television or stereo, as they would interfere with her congenitally deaf adoptive brother's hearing aid. In her twenties she met her birth mother, who told her that her natural father was a folk musician, long after she had chosen that route herself.

Her nickname, "KT", is a play on "Katie". While a student at Royal Holloway, University of London she performed on an acoustic guitar in a student bar, under the name "Katie". Her style of music varies from the folk genre to the more pop genre.

(Note: since the video takes a while to load based on your bandwidth, just hit play, then pause... while the video buffer gets full.)
