Live Shots: Andrew Bird

Shortly after graduation from Northwestern University with a BA in violin performance, Andrew Bird began his career like so many other twenty-something hopefuls…with a self-released album (Music of Hair, 1996). Over the past 18 years, Bird has soared through dive bars and music festivals, making performance pitstops at landmarks like Carnegie Hall and New Orleans’ Preservation Hall. As the Midwestern multi-instrumentalist and world-class whistler prepares to hit the road again this summer in support of his latest release, I Want to See Pulaski at Night, we take a look back at some of our favorite live shots.
