Ben Kyle of Romantica duetting with Ryan Adams: "The Dark" (live in Minneapolis)

Briefly revisiting the "not a meltdown" topic, here is a fantastically delicious duet from the 9/27 Minneapolis Ryan Adams show, during opener Ben Kyle's set when Ryan joined him onstage.

Ben is the Belfast, Ireland-born frontman for Minneapolis band Romantica [see previous mention] and this collaboration is absolutely superb, full of bittersweet harmonies. So, so, sooooooo good!

The best surprise of the night! Thanks for the link. It was great to hear it again. That is a brilliant tune. I was delighted to hear Ben open for Ryan.

Thanks for posting the song. They really do sound good together. Hopefully, it will open more doors for Romantica.
