Robyn Hitchcock & the Sadies 'Stage Fright' (The Band tribute) (live video)
In the Band's discography, Stage Fright isn't quite up there with Music from Big Pink, but it's nevertheless an iconic album from one of Canada's most celebrated outfits. Robyn Hitchcock and the Sadies covered the entire thing at the Winnipeg Folk Festival this July, and now the festival has shared footage of the whole thing.

The footage shows Hitchcock singing Stage Fright with the Sadies acting as his backing band. They tear through the rootsy rock'n'roll tunes, which are filled with boogie guitar and tinkling honky-tonk keys. Hitchcock intersperses the songs with charming banter, and we see all the action from a few different camera angles while the punters soak in the action from the comfort of their lawn chairs.
