12-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Emmylou Harris has reinvented her music time and time again. See her perform at UCLA's Royce Hall with her "Red Dirt Boys" Band.
Call it country, folk, rockabilly or honky-tonk, Emmylou has covered it all and then some. Long known as a master interpreter of others songsadding her determined, resonant voice to the mix with everyone from Gram Parsons and Roy Orbison, to Gillian Welch and Bright Eyesshe has again ignited her immense capacity as songwriter. Her exquisite Hard Bargain from 2011 was one of only three albums for which she wrote the majority of the songs herself. Performing with her band of Nashville heavyweight producers Phil Madeira and Will Kimbrough, master fiddle and mandolin player Rickie Simpkins, along with the always-in-lock-step rhythm section of Chris Donahue and Bryan Owings, Emmylou will knock it out of the park with a combination of songs new and old. Join us in honoring this legendary artist.
