The Drivetime Sessions with @minniebirch
Singer-songwriter Minnie Birch returned to Danny's Drivetime show for an "as live slot" recorded in advance because Minnie is currently in Germany. The two discussed Minnie's travels in Iceland and her prior tour in Germany.
Minnie then treated us to a "beautiful and haunting", as Danny called it, rendition of 'Up and Down'. Minnie was inspired by 'A Midsummer's Night Dream', she wrote the piece for her local Shakespeare group The Company of Players. The second song Minnie played doesn't yet have a name, but the moving lyrics certainly reflect the fact she wrote it while staying in a refugee camp in Calais. Finally Minnie performed a mellow cover of Ellie Goulding's 'Still Falling for You', which was used for the soundtrack of Bridget Jones's Baby.
