#SufjanWeek: A 2007 live performance of “The Lakes of Canada” for La Blogotheque

One of my favorite live videos that Sufjan has recorded is this 2007 Take Away Show in Cincinatti, Ohio. Visibly cold and uncomfortable, he initially protests after a shaky first attempt. Vincent Moon must’ve been very convincing because he soldiers on for a second time with a jacket on and does a beautiful acoustic banjo version of The Innocence Mission’s “The Lakes of Canada” from their 1999 album Birds of My Neighborhood.

#SufjanWeek

We're talking about Sufjan Stevens all week in celebration of his new record Carrie & Lowell out on March 31. Follow our posts and share your favorite Sufjan song with us for a chance to win a copy of the album in vinyl or CD.

TAKE ME THERE

Some of my favorite things are beef jerky, bacon, Benedict Cumberbatch, pistachios (aka the nut of the gods), my husband's face, and coffee.
