Emmylou Harris

A London audience has always welcomed Emmylou Harris with open arms, and Sunday night featured more love than ever. In 1975, when the young country performer toured the U.K., she returned to the States with a newfound credibility, and the following year, she was releasing music that would cement her as a star. Harris was introduced by BBC Radio 2's Whispering Bob Harris, a lontime friend, as "a force of good in the world," and the singer set to work captivating the crowd. With an innate ability to inject every song with wisdom, grace and a portal back in time, Harris's performance was measured and engrossing, with her slick and talented band, the Red Dirt Boys, supporting her through classics like "Making Believe," "Michelangelo" and "Green Pastures." The kicker: an outstanding "Boulder to Birmingham" that elicited much love from the London audience.
