Ryan Hardiman and Maddie Gourevich

Tonight we bring you a special treat. This is a very raw video of Ryan Hardiman’s God Night performance of “Moonage Daydream: The Bowie Songbook.”  Ryan, with some help from guest vocalist Maddie Gourevich, pianist Mark Scarpelli and a string quartet featuring Molly Lynn Page and Kristi Holstein (violin), Alasha Al-Qudwah (viola) and Shawn Simms (cello), performed some of the greatest hits of The Thin White Duke, David Bowie.

This was the 7 and 9 PM Goodnight 2011 show at Trinity Lutheran, presented by Charleston Community Music Association. It was a wonderful night of more challenging music than we usually hear during Goodnight, and it was very well received.

You will hear the following songs:

Moonage Daydream
Space Oddity
China Girl
The Prettiest Star
Life on Mars?
Wild is the Wind
Absolute Beginners
Under Pressure
Lady Grinning Soul

The video was shot by Rudy Panucci and Melanie Larch, and a more complete version with additional camera angles and enhanced sound will be availalbe online later this winter. We wanted to get this online as soon as possible for your enjoyment.
