Caroline Lavelle plays the cello like a sorceress casting a spell, occasionally hiding behind her wild mane of blond hair as she sings of pastoral themes. Her alluring style is reminiscent of Sarah MacLaughlin -- “The sea it freezes over to trap the light / And I'm in love with being in love and you were never quite the one.” When Lavelle gives full voice to her cello, as she does here during a performance of “Farther than the Sun” (from her album Brilliant Midnight 2.0) she's truly enchanting. TED Music Director Thomas Dolby backs her on keyboards.
