That Old Devil Moon

Friday night, the steady and I went to the Cheyenne Jackson and Michael Feinstein "Power of Two" concert at Carnegie Hall. The fine evening of music was filled with ballads from "The Great American Songbook" of the mid-1900s (lots of George Gershwin, Cole Porter, etc.).

One of the tunes performed was "Old Devil Moon" from the 1947 musical "Finian's Rainbow."

For this week's "YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend," here is that song from the show's 2009 Broadway revival (also starring Cheyenne Jackson).


An aside: As a native of Western Pennsylvania, I struggled Friday with how to pronounce the concert venue. Was I at CARN-egie Hall (NY style) or Car-NEY-gie Hall (Pittsburgh/Scotland style)?
