Iris DeMent

When: Thu., Dec. 10, 8 p.m. 2015

If DeMent had been born a couple decades earlier, she would perhaps be exhalted alongside names like June Carter and Kris Kristofferson. But if that was the case, she may not have given us “Our Town,” which surely deserves a place among the greatest country and folk songs ever written. In any event, modern audiences are fortunate they can still see a performer and songwriter of her caliber in 2015. She tours in support of The Trackless Woods, which sets the poetry of Russian modernist Anna Akhmatova to her own musical accompaniment.
