Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Tracy Chapman Live

With her characteristically strong vocals and tight instrumentation, Tracy Chapman evokes a planned getaway to a better life in "Fast Car." This outstanding singer-songwriter is known for compositions that are both deeply personal and socially conscious; note the banner on the stage for Amnesty International, a cause with which she has long been associated. To hear an August 2009 interview with Chapman on NPR, click here.
