The Barton Hills Choir will be performing at the Austin City Limits Music Festival this year on both Fridays – October 3rd and 10th at 11:15am. The choir will perform many songs from the Scottish band Belle and Sebastian and front man Stuart Murdoch will accompany the choir on three tunes – Me and the Major, Write About Love, and I Didn’t See It Coming.

Mr. Murdoch met the choir at this year’s SXSW festival where the choir performed for the screening of his movie, God Help The Girl, at the Paramount Theatre.

Here’s a video of one of the Murdoch tunes recorded by the choir this summer.
