Emmylou Harris and her Red Dirt Boys will perform with special guests Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller during The Greek Theatre's 80th Anniversary season.
Already celebrated as a discoverer and interpreter of other artists' songs, 12-time Grammy Award winner Emmylou Harris has, in the last decade, gained admiration as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing. Few in pop or country music have achieved such honesty or revealed such maturity in their writing. Forty years into her career, Harris shares the hard-earned wisdom that—hopefully if not inevitably—comes with getting older, though she's never stopped looking ahead. "I'm still trying to expand my listening horizons, to find the kind of music that resonates for what we know to be true at this point in our lives. When you get to be 60, it's not like you stop living. In fact, I think you live more and do have something to say," says Emmylou Harris.
Hard Bargain is Harris' latest release, which showcases the candor of Harris's words matched by a simple, elegantly rendered production from Jay Joyce (Patty Griffin, Jack Ingram, Cage the Elephant), with whom she'd previously recorded a theme for the romantic drama Nights in Rodanthe. With only Harris, Joyce, and multi-instrumentalist Giles Reaves, Joyce garnered big results from this strikingly small combo.
Patty Griffin's seventh album, Downtown Church, was produced by Buddy Millerand engages her special voice with the myriad traditions of gospel music. Buddy Miller is one of Nashville's irreplaceable men, a gifted and supremely modest singer, guitarist, songwriter and producer. Miller's 2009 release Written in Chalk features collaborations by a variety of renowned artists, including duets by both Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin.
