Emmylou Harris, Live In Concert: Newport Folk 2011

Emmylou Harris performs at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival.

Emmylou Harris' Grammy-festooned career stretches back more than 40 years, to her legendary early collaborations with the late country-folk legend Gram Parsons. Hard Bargain, her new album, is suffused with mourning, both for Parsons (in "The Road") and for her late friend Kate McGarrigle, whom she memorably memorializes in "Darlin' Kate." But the Country Music Hall of Famer still knows where and how to locate sweetness and joy in her music, and she remains vital and contemporary. Here, Harris performs live at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I.
