Iris DeMent is one of America’s most celebrated performers and “the best
singer I’ve ever heard,” according to Merle Haggard. Her 2012 album
Sing the Delta—her first recording of originals in 16 years—is full of
plainspoken, fiercely honest, deeply considered songs about matters of
faith and questioning. “The songs themselves are as languorous as a
hot summer afternoon, evoking DeMent’s early childhood in Arkansas.
Her distinct voice [is] richer, more expressive and more reflective than
ever”—NPR’s “All Things Considered.” The New Yorker called it “a
strong collection of originals that find her keen eye for detail and distinctive
high-lonesome wobble intact” and The Boston Globe, “a work of rare,
unvarnished grace and power…”
Iris, on guitar, piano, and vocals, will be joined by David Jacques on bass,
Jon Graboff on pedal steel guitar, Bryan Owings on drums, and
Jason Wilber on guitar.
