A girl has to follow her dream. And so it was with Emmylou Harris.

 

She started college on a drama scholarship in Greensboro, NC., in the

mid-1960s.

In due time, she dropped out and moved to NYC where she did what is now classically cliché: waited tables to support a passion for music.

Naturally, Emmylou performed in – where else but –

the legendary bohemian mecca of Greenwich Village coffeehouses.

 

The list of artists she’s performed with sounds like a Who’s Who

of folk, country, bluegrass, alt rock and Americana.

All that aside, Emmylou is simply graced with the voice of an angel.
