Hozier & Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir at Newport 2014 – “Work Song”

Hozier’s performance of “Work Song” with the Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir was one of our favorite moments of the Newport Folk Festival this past summer (the backstage rehearsal I was lucky enough to catch was even more chilling than the stage performance). The Irish singer-songwriter appeared on SNL last night with strong performances of “Take Me to Church” and “Angel of Small Death and the Codine Scene,” but this one still takes the taco. I’m amazed at how quiet that crowd is.
