August 22: The Music of Emmylou Harris & Gillian Welch
Two woman who could just as easily be described as alt-rock, folk, alternative or any number of descriptions, both have deep roots in Country and traditional American folk music. Emmylou Harris paved the way for the term Americana, Gillian Welch maybe its most successful artist of the genre.
May 30: The Music of Dolly Parton & Alison Krauss
Two iconic artists that brought country music into new eras. Dolly Parton, superbly talented with an incredible ability to turn all the assumptions about gender on its head with her sly wit and deep intelligence– “It costs a lot to look this cheap!”
Alison Krauss re-connected to the roots of country music with her stellar acoustic band, Union Station, and moved Nashville into the 21st century. Her duo album with Robert Plant not only broke expectations, but turned out to be a truly fine record, not just a clever collaboration.
June 20: The Music of Patsy Cline & Linda Ronstadt
Patsy Cline achieved a hit-radio presence not enjoyed by female country artists before her. Her remarkable voice and her untimely death created a country music legacy perhaps only matched by Hank Williams.
Linda Ronstadt was the California girl that brought Nashville to LA. Her incredible range and tone served all the music she performed, and she continually evolved throughout her entire career.
July 25: The Music of Loretta Lynn & Tammy Wynette
It is hard to get more classic country than Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. Both are known for their long careers and hit making singles. Both were famous for their solo work and their legendary duos with male artists. Loretta with Conway Twitty and Tammy with George Jones. In addition, Loretta Lynn, 86 years old and still going strong, made an unexpected and brilliant recording with Jack White in 2004.
