Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell and Richard Thompson Electric Trio
Three Music Legends - One Night, One Stage
In celebration of a new collaborative album to be released February 26, Old Yellow Moon, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell are embarking on a series of tour dates this spring, including a stop at DPAC on March 30.
Emmylou Harris' contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years and includes 12 Grammy Awards and a Billboard Century Award. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists’ recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.
Rodney Crowell is a multi-Grammy-award winner whose songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Norah Jones, Etta James and Grateful Dead among others. His 1988 breakthrough Diamonds and Dirt, generated five #1 singles and a Grammy Award for the song “After All This Time.” In 2012, Crowell released KIN: Songs By Mary Karr and Rodney Crowell, which made its debut at #1 on the Americana and Country Rock album chart. His honors also include an ASCAP Lifetime Achievement Award and membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Richard Thompson’s latest album, Electric, comes in what is arguably his most creatively productive period in a career that stretches back some 45 years, back to his emergence as a teen guitarist and songwriter with the groundbreaking Fairport Convention—the band that essentially invented the term “English folk-rock.” With his dozens of albums consistently high on critics polls and guitar skills that have earned him a Top 20 spot on Rolling Stone’s list of Best Guitarists of All Time, Richard Thompson’s many facets only seem to get more, well, multifaceted.
