See Margo Price’s Feisty Three-Song Set at Washington’s 930 Club

Performance including the biting “Pay Gap” was part of of NPR Music’s 10th anniversary celebration

Margo Price played a three-song set at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club recently, as National Public Radio hosted an event to honor the 10th anniversary of NPR Music. Price, whose Midwest Farmer’s Daughter LP was Number Three on Rolling Stone‘s 40 Best Country Albums list for 2016, had another exceptional year in 2017, landing in the top spot of this year’s survey with the superb All American Made.

Her acoustic set from the club’s balcony included the title cut to that album, as well as the LP’s female-empowering “Pay Gap’ and opened with “Tennessee Song” from her previous record. Dedicating “Pay Gap” to “women… in these times that we’re having,” as well as to minorities and anyone falling victim to inequality in matters of employment compensation, Price earned some of the crowd’s most vocal approval – especially from the women in attendance – as she sang, “We are all the same in the eyes of God, but in the eyes of some rich white men, no more than a maid to be owned like a dog and a second-class citizen.” Watch Price’s three-song performance above.

Price is set for a three-night stand at Nashville‘s iconic Ryman Auditorium late next spring. The first of the shows, scheduled for May 19th with special guest Tyler Childers is already sold out. A second show is set for May 20th and a third Ryman gig has been added, with tickets for her May 23rd appearance featuring Colter Wall going on sale Friday, December 15th. A ticket lottery to secure a place in line is currently underway.
