Bon Iver’s High School Musical

The “Justin Vernon” in the title of this video would be Bon Iver, creator of the unbeatable For Emma, Long Ago.  (First listen to “Flume” by him and then as covered by Peter Gabriel).  The above video is Vernon returning to his high school alma mater in Eu Claire, Wisconsin (!) for a concert/fundraiser with the jazz band.  He’s the dude in white up front.  The adult who’s not conducting.

An album of this concert (Duke Ellington and Bon Iver “covers”) is available on Rhapsody and elsewhere.  You can also check out video of a rehearsal of “For Emma” with Justin and the band on Youtube.
