The Haden Triplets at SXSW

I am slowly posting a few videos I made in South by Southwest this year.

First up are the Haden Triplets performing “Single Girl, Married Girl” at the famous honky-tonk, The Broken Spoke.

Also, performing Bill Monroe’s “Memories of Mother & Dad” a little later in the afternoon at the Third Man Records showcase in an empty warehouse.
