Norah Jones joined Sharon Van Etten onstage at Webster Hall Saturday night for an inspired performance of “Seventeen,” the nostalgic sing-along highlight from Van Etten’s new album Remind Me Tomorrow. Introducing the song, Van Etten talked about being a new mother and the importance in finding companionship with fellow mothers who were touring musicians.
“The few that I know, we’re all constantly texting each other, Googling it, checking in,” she says before introducing Norah Jones as “someone that I grew up, that I really admire, who has become a neighbor and a peer as well.”
The performance of the reflective rocker was especially poignant since the show was Van Etten’s last hometown as a New Yorker. The singer said she’s moving to Los Angeles and thanked the crowd repeatedly for supporting her over the past 15 years she lived in this city.
