For more than 40 years, the airwaves have carried the crooning of country legend Emmylou Harris. A 12-time Grammy winner and recent Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, Harris has had a long and illustrious career, and on Saturday, Nov. 14, she's bringing the music back to Boise. Harris last appeared in the City of Trees in July 2002, performing at the Idaho Center Amphitheater for the Down from the Mountain Tour, which featured artists from T-Bone Burnett's hit soundtrack for the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? This time, she'll take the stage at the Egyptian Theatre, and she's bringing her Red Dirt Boys with her.
Harris has created many different types of music throughout her career, serving both as an interpreter of other composers' works and as a singer-songwriter. Last summer, she released the album All I Intended to Be with Nonesuch Records, featuring guest vocals from Dolly Parton, Vince Gill and Buddy Miller--who will also be Harris' special guest at the Egyptian. For those unable to catch Harris on Saturday night, you're in luck. Idaho Concerts and the Egyptian Theatre decided to bring Harris back for a second performance the following night. It's not often you get two chances to catch country music royalty in the flesh, so get off your duffs and witness a legend 40 years in the making.
Saturday, Nov. 14-Sunday, Nov. 15, 8 p.m., $52-$55, Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St., 208-387-1273.
