Monday: Emmylou Harris with John Paul White - Twin Limb - Steve Mahabir

Emmylou Harris with John Paul White - Kyrie. Background -  Emmylou Harris & John Paul White have released "Kyrie," the second single from the upcoming Mercyland: Hymns For The Rest Of Us, Volume II compilation. "Kyrie" is available today as a single for purchase and streaming at all digital outlets. The full Mercyland compilation will be released on January 15, 2016 on Mercyland Records. This is the second installment of the Mercyland compilation, bringing together some of the most prominent voices in Americana music. "I don’t know that the first Mercyland would have even happened without Emmylou’s involvement," says Phil Madeira. "When I started Volume II, she suggested we write together, which of course was an honor.  She brought lovely verse ideas to the table, but a chorus eluded us until the words 'Kyrie Eleison' appeared.  What better prayer can be prayed than to ask for mercy?"

Emmylou Harris - Live In London - 1995

Reloaded 08/May/2015 -   Emmylou Harris contributions to country-rock, the bluegrass revival, folk music, and the Americana movement are widely lauded. I am always pleased that I got to read a review of 'Elite Hotel' her second solo album, back in 1976 when it was first released. Not only did I love the album, it helped me discover the country rock genre of that time, and set high standards, that helped me avoid the more 'cheesy' country artists. She remains a firm favorite of mine. This concert was Emmylou Harris and The Daniel Lanois Band at the Shepherds Bush Empire, London, England on the November 23rd 1995. This is a republication of an Emmylou Harris concert we first featured in October 2007 and the download includes four tracks missing from the original feature, which therefore now makes this a full concert archive recording . Genre: Americana, country, country rock, alt country. Set: Full Set. Source: Soundboard and FM Stereo (BBC Radio Two).

Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band - Washington DC 1976

This is Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band at the opening night of the Warner Theater, Washington DC, USA on the 28th March 1976. 'Elite Hotel ', released in December 1975, established that the buzz created by the previous album 'Pieces of the Sky' was well-founded. Unusual for country albums at the time, which largely revolved around a hit single, Emmylou's' albums borrowed their approach from the album-oriented rock market, in terms of quality and artistic merit. Tracks like "Sin City" , "Wheels" , and "Till I Gain Control Again" , which weren't singles, easily stood against tracks like "Together Again", "Sweet Dreams" , and "One of These Days" , which were. While 'Elite Hotel ' was a number 1 country album, the album did sufficiently well with the rock audience. ' Elite Hotel ' won a Grammy in 1976 for Best Country Vocal Performance, Female .
