    Christina Courtin Performs Daytrotter Session of Songs from Her Nonesuch Debut

    Christina Courtin recently performed a number of songs off her self-titled Nonesuch debut album for a Daytrotter Session. The session features the songs "Green Jay," "Foreign Country," "Jackson," "Bundah," and "Hedonistic Paradise," is now available online at daytrotter.com.

    "The human trials are ongoing," suggests Daytrotter's Sean Moeller in his introduction to session. "Singer and songwriter Christina Courtin writes songs that speak to these human trials, looking at and thinking about what's going on around her, as well as just below the skin ... She looks upon these trials in amazement, turning them into short vignettes of innocence, as the documentation of all that we go through to get to somewhere else, sometimes anywhere else is more appealing. There's sadness in her pretty voice, but there's also this kind of big-eyed wonder in it ..." Read more and listen in to the session at daytrotter.com.

    Courtin is set to play the third and final night of the Reclaim the Coast concert at City Winery this Friday, July 30. The events began last Friday night with a performance from the legendary Pete Seeger and continued last night. All of the proceeds from the events will be donated to the Gulf Restoration Network to benefit Gulf Coast communities hit by the BP oil spill. For more information on this and other upcoming events, including Courtin's two August dates opening for Mike Doughty, head to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
