Music Review: Austin City Limits: Cyndi Lauper

This concert has been recently shown on PBS and is still available through the internet.  Cyndi Lauper is quite a performer.  She has just released a country album , Detour and this concert is in support of that album.  In the concert Lauper plays flute as well as a steel guitar on a base.  Of the country music I most enjoyed "I want to be a Cowboy's Sweetheart" and "The End of the World" which is the cover song for KBYU's Granite Flats.  She sings a few of  her classics, "Time After Time" which is just exquisite, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" which gets everyone hopping, and then as an encore she sings a Capella "True Colors."  This is a very entertaining concert.  For a woman in her 60s Lauper has great energy.  However she appears too skinny.  I hope it was just the camera.  She sports pink hair which I guess is her fashion.
