Premier: Emmylou Harris Concert



Emmylou Harris is an American singer and songwriter.

Back in the 60s she was spotted by Gram Parsons who recognized her special talent of introducing harmonies that the song writers had overlooked.  After Gram's untimely and bizarre death, Emmylou went solo and carved her own career.

She has recorded with Bob Dylan, John Denver, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Roy Orbison, Neil Young and most recently toured with Mark Knopfler.

In 1995 she diverged from country for a new Indy-style sound for her album "Wrecking Ball", which was panned by critics as career suicide, and yet sold more then 5 million copies.  Since then Emmylou has periodically, continued to dip her toes into this unique style of music.

She went on to win 13 Grammy's and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.

Emmylou Harris appears for the first time ever in London City on Saturday.   The party begins at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL time.

Weekend in Review - February 17th to 19th



Oooh kiddies, auntie Bailey's feet are throbbing from all that dancing this weekend.

On Friday we ended the week on a high with a Best in Leather/Latex contest at Bar Soho.  Our new Dj, Snakey, took to the decks and provided us with a couple of hours of great music.  We then headed on down the road to Madame Lala's London Revue for an Emmylou Harris tribute concert, which was absolutely fantastic.

It's Emmylou Harris!  Well actually it is an avatar doing a tribute.
On Saturday the concert area Regent's Park was converted to give it a country feel for a special tribute concert featuring none other than Dolly Parton.  Dolly's musical talents overshadow many of her contemporaries and her chest overshadowed the dancers in the park.

The Dolly Parton fan club take to the dance floor...yeehaw!
For entertainment on a Sunday we usually head to Comptons pub, but we had a change and returned to Regent's Park for a Seekers tribute concert to bring our folk fest to an end.  With a Best in Sixties contest, we were not short on colour or (hideous) patterns!

Immediately after the Seekers, we headed across town to Lezbo for a Wacky Outfit contest.  I don't think I have words to describe dancing horses, cupcakes, turkeys, etc. so I will show you a pic instead!

Erm...the punters in Lezbo
Okay, I am off to soak my feet...have a great week and don't forget to visit London City frequently for all your shopping and partying needs!
