Watch Today today

February 26th, 2010

If you were one of the billions of folks who watched the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games a week ago, you caught a glimpse of the über-talented spoken word artist Shane Koyczan. Above is a photo of Shane when he joined Dan Mangan at a BC Scene show I wrote about last April, one of many times they’ve shared the stage over the past few years.

So I just caught wind of the fact that Shane will be, in just a few hours’ time, performing on NBC’s “Today Show” with Matt Lauer (airing at 8 a.m. EST/PST on Friday, February 26th), and he’s invited Dan Mangan to join him; they go on at around 9:45 a.m. Watch it, listen, and be blown away.

From the same show as pictured above, here’s a video I took when Shane joined in on Dan’s “Fair Verona”:


postscript…
I missed it!!! I had to take a client call, and when I ran back to the tv afterwards, I saw Shane and Dan amidst the crowd, but they’d already performed. Zounds. Good thing the Today folks posted the performance on their site — whee! Great job, guys!
