Neil Gaiman Sings About Joan of Arc

At the season finale of Minnesota Public Radio’s WITS this weekend, novelist Neil Gaiman joined a talented crew of writers and musicians onstage to sing a song he wrote about Joan of Arc. We’ve embedded a video clip above–what do you think?

Over at BoingBoing, Maggie Koerth-Baker called WITS “a very nerdy, slightly tipsy, younger cousin of A Prairie Home Companion.” Follow this link for more video, audio and photos from the event.

Here’s more about the video: “Author Neil Gaiman shows his songwriting chops at Minnesota Public Radio’s Wits with a song he wrote as part of the 8in8 project. He performs ‘The Problem with Saints’ with Josh Ritter, John Munson, Steve Roehm, The Ascots and The Brass Messengers.” (Via HarperCollins Canada)
