Brownlee: She had 70 skirts
- The US opera star Lawrence Brownlee (from Youngstown, OH) met with journalists after his recital at the Slovak Institute in Vienna on Feb. 28 this year and, put on the spot, performed a few bars the folk song "Sedemdesiat sukien mala." Here's the video:
Brownlee is currently singing at the Vienna State Opera. The recital was arranged as a promo for his upcoming performances in Bratislava and Kosice in April this year.
The brash folk song lyrics Brownlee sings say, "She had 70 skirts, and yet, she didn't [couldn't] get married, and I have only, only, only one and am being asked [to get married by men] from as far as past Vienna."
