First gig of the year tonight and the first of three Celtic Connections concerts we are scheduled to attend this year.
We are off to see Iris DeMent at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall supported by Pieta Brown

I'm looking forward to seeing Iris given that she is not the most prolific of artists having only released 6 albums since 1992 although she often appears on other artists records
I've only got two off them  1993's My Life and 1996's The Way I Should and below is the opening song from each.

I'm not familiar with Pieta Brown but given that she has collaborated with the likes of Calexico and The Wood Brothers it will be good to rectify that.

Iris DeMent - Sweet is the Melody

Iris DeMent - When My Morning Comes Around


  1. Enjoy the Celtic Connections shows CC. I look forward to hearing all about them. Is Alasdair Roberts & Völvur among the gigs you're catching? I'm off to see them in London on Thursday.

  2. Jealous. Very fond of Iris, especially (but not only) when she records alongside Mr. Prine.
