However, she was very honest about it and after several hilarious moments, she got back into the song. This really got the audience on her side and disaster tuned to triumph. She has a lovely clear voice and is a good musician, including playing a great instrumental passage with her violin. She was accompanied by two guitarists for most of the show, but was joined on stage by members of Bon Iver’s band for the final number, a cover of Neil Young’s ‘From Hank to Hendrix’.
