Imagine if you will, a house on the plains of the 1800's. The parlor has a piano and this is where gatherings happen. The voices are earthy and real. This is an image that springs to mind whenever I listen to Iris Dement.
I first heard her many years ago at the home of my friend, Scott. He pulled out a CD that had been autographed by Iris and opened up a whole new world of music for me.
From the movie "Songcatcher"
Iris Dement and John Prine
"He Reached Down" - a song that speaks to something deep within.
So, Sue*, was I right?
