Sweet Harmony at WolfTrap, VA - 8/17/04
Photos by Thrasher
Last week, we caught the Sweet Harmony tour with Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller, Patti Griffith, Gilliam Welch and David Rawlings at WolfTrap Performing Arts Center, Vienna, VA.
The show was fabulous on so many levels that it's been hard for me to do it justice with a review. I took a bunch of photos and thought I'd put them up while I tried to compose something about the special evening.
At the moment, all I can really say is that I heard angels sing that evening. Everyone was enchanted by the love that poured from the stage and didn't want the evening to end.
There was tremendous respect among the artists as they traded off with one another. Emmylou would solo. The Buddy would join and then Patti. Then Buddy would drop off and come back solo and be joined by Gillian Welch who would be joined by Rawlings. And on & on it went.
Great stuff. Hopefully more later. In the meantime, here's some more on Emmylou Harris.
