    Event Description:
    Iris DeMent is an acclaimed singer/songwriter perhaps best-known for hit singles Our Town and Wasteland of the Free. Her 1992 debut Infamous Angel was hailed by Rolling Stone as “an essential album of the 90’s.” Following Angel, DeMent released a series of stellar records that established her as "one of the finest singer-songwriters in America." (The Guardian) Combining elements of folk, gospel and country, her rich lyrical landscapes and captivating music have earned two Grammy nominations and the respect of many of her peers such as John Prine, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell who all invited her to collaborate. Merle Haggard asked her to join his touring band, and David Byrne and Natalie Merchant famously covered her "Let The Mystery Be" as a duet on MTV Unplugged. DeMent returned in 2012 with her most recent album, 'Sing The Delta,' which prompted NPR to call her "one of the great voices in contemporary popular music" and The Boston Globe to hail the collection as "a work of rare, unvarnished grace and power." Ana Egge opens. Steve Earle has said, “’Ana Egge plays on a guitar she built with her own two hands and sings like she’s telling us her deepest, darkest secrets.”
