Seeing Emmylou Harris In concert is like sitting down with the girl next door.
Although there were 3.000 fans gathered in the Arena Oct. 12. she seemed to reach out to each one individually. Rather than a recital, the concert became a conversation among friends.
Part of Emmylou's appeal comes from sincerity. She Is not phony when singing about joys and heartaches; she sings from experience. She put many years into playing bars and honky-tonks before achieving success.
In the late 1960s she was just another failing folk performer in New York. But she got a break performing on one of Gram Parson's albums, and record companies began to notice her. She recorded her first album in 1973 and has been expanding her audience since then
Emmylou has a beautiful soprano voice, but is also quite capable of shouting out a fast paced rock 'n' roll song. From somewhere In her throat she can even pull out a half-growl for those honky-tonk booze songs
In the course of her performance she played country, jazz, rock and swing. Emmylou's abilities were tested and proven by holding the diverse collection together without losing the audience.
The real crowd pleasers were the upbeat tunes The audience stood, clapped and even stomped a little for songs like "Sister Coming Home." "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" and "Leaving Louisiana In the Broad Daylight."
Complementing Emmylou was her superb backup group, the Hot Band.
