“Her concert…was a reminder of just how important she remains in the American music pantheon. Understated and iconic, she is both a roots music legend and a contemporary artistic force.” — Chicago Tribune
Known as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive voice, Emmylou Harris is one of the most admired and influential women in music today. A 14-time Grammy-winner, including her recent Lifetime Achievement Award, she has recorded more than 25 albums in a career spanning four decades and worked with such diverse artists as Linda Ronstadt, Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler, Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, Ryan Adams, Beck, Elvis Costello, Johnny Cash, Lucinda Williams, Lyle Lovett and, most recently, Rodney Crowell. Her distinctive voice has allowed her to cross musical boundaries with ease, and she is one of the few artists who have achieved such honesty and revealed such maturity in their writing.
