    Live Video: Elizabeth Mitchell / Frances England

    I mentioned before the slew of release concerts being put on to celebrate the release of Many Hands: Family Music for Haiti. Three concerts down, three more to go. If they're at all like the one in Mill Valley, California, featuring Elizabeth Mitchell and Frances England, they're special affairs. At the show, they both played their tracks from the compilation, which are among my favorites on the record. For Frances' contribution, her original "That's What Friends Are For," Mitchell and husband Dan Littleton helped out. The song's called, "That's What Friends Are For" -- how could they not?

    O yay and happiness. They make the world a better place just by being in it and playing their music.

    My family loved this concert SO much! it was so fun and intimate (with BUNCHES of people, but still so) and happy. A perfect pairing in a perfect venue.
