Everyone seemed to enjoy this spirited performance by St. Vincent Folk at The Sanitarium Music Nights, San Luis Obispo, California ~ 3 August 2011
I asked Vincent Bernardy what his song was about and he told me "The Red Balloon song is based on the 1956 French film by Albert Lammorisse entitled RED BALLOON & the feelings that invokes in children who watch the movie & growing up in this western culture."
Vincent Bernardy: guitar and lead vocals
