Emmylou Harris’s Wrecking Ball: Live in Concert

$16 Public

7:30 pm

In fall 1995, Emmylou Harris joined up with iconic U2 producer Daniel Lanois for a sharp-left turn away from her country-music roots. The result was a breakthrough reimagination for Harris, and one of her most universally revered albums (Wrecking Ball). Harris’s shimmering vocals unite an impressive collection of covers (by Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, Jimi Hendrix, and more) that still sound fresh and ring true two decades later.


On November 3, some of the Triangle’s finest musicians (including Billie Feather, Dale Baker, Mark Williams, Taylor Leonhardt, Sara Zaleta, and Angela Winter) come together under the musical direction of Tim Carless for a one-time only performance of the album in its entirety.
