12-time Grammy Award winner Emmylou Harris comes to Door Community Auditorium (DCA) on June 26 at 7 pm to perform songs from her distinguished career. Harris will play with her renowned backing band, the Red Dirt Boys, presenting new material as well as beloved Harris classics.
The strength of Harris’ crystalline voice, along with her prodigious skills in writing and collecting songs, have made her an icon in the world of folk and country music. In her prolific 40 years on the roots music scene, Harris has collaborated with such luminaries as Gram Parsons, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and Joan Baez.
In the last decade Harris has gained admiration for her eloquently straightforward songwriting and for her incomparably expressive singing. Harris’ live performances (including the expert backing of the Red Dirt Boys) provide ideal showcases for these diverse talents.
The evening also features an appearance by Minnesota-based indie-rock band The Pines. Rolling Stone writer David Fricke calls The Pines’ music “quietly gripping.” The Pines have shared the stage with acts like Bon Iver, Iris DeMent, and Mason Jennings.
Cynthia Stiehl, A Friend of the Auditorium (in celebration of the YMCA) and Alexander’s are sponsors of this concert.
