Cover Of The Week: Kristen Barry does Neil Young

Almost ten years ago I saw Chris Whitley play a killer show at Fletcher's in Baltimore. The opener was a woman from Seattle named Kristen Barry who totally rocked the crowd into fandom. One of the tunes she played during her set was this Neil Young cover, which she had also recorded for her first and only album. It's a great version of the song, and it's a shame that she hasn't made any more music that's commercially available. After all, she thanked Soundgarden in her liner notes, so she's got the right kind of influences/friends in my book.
Kristen Barry - "Don't Cry"
