Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear Cover Fleetwood Mac

Back in December, I headed out on a Sunday night to see Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear at Brighton Music Hall. The show was being taped by Front Row Boston, a show on WGBH, our local PBS affiliate. Some videos of the show have been trickling out, and yesterday they posted their cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams."

This version of "Dreams" might be what it takes to give Fleetwood Mac another shot. Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear's version is slowed down to about half the tempo of the original, and it truly gives "Mama Bear" a chance to shine. It's much more folk than Fleetwood Mac's rock, but this version is truly lovely and heartfelt. 

To watch the video for Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear's version of "Dreams," you'll have to head over to Front Row Boston's website. While you're there, be sure to check out some more of their live videos. It's all professionally shot, multi-camera recordings of concerts in and around Boston, including some of our favorites like Lady Lamb, Punch Brothers, Rubblebucket, First Aid Kit, and Dropkick Murphys.
