Sweet sounds of Reina del Cid

This week on Donald Glenn’s songs for Sunday, I’m featuring two songs by Reina del Cid, a truly marvellous American singer-songwriter, who I discovered on YouTube a couple of years ago. I was learning to play the Bobby Darin standard Beyond the Sea and I watched Reina’s cover of it. Not only was it a nice rendition of the tune, but the video was very amusing and… um, authentic.

It must have been a windy day, because at one point their video set-up took a tumble, and I think the drummer also got stung by a horsefly or a bee. Anyway, after that I was hooked on Reina (real name Rachelle Cordova) and Lead Guitarist Toni Lindgren. They perform a new cover every Sunday on YouTube, and I often tune for a listen.

Hope you like the new list. Ciao for now…
