Blues, Folk, & Country, All Ages

Iris Dement

When: Fri., July 23, 8 p.m. 2010

Iris DeMent burst on the folk scene with Infamous Angel, one of the best singer-songwriter albums of the '90s. Her live performances were full of quiet power and heart-wrenching emotion that won her legions of fans. Yet she's kepta low profile since releasing 1996'sThe Way I Should, her last album of original tunes. DeMent was savaged by the right wing media when she stopped performing in protest of the Iraq War, and she's been struggling with writer's block for years. She's only playing a few dates this summer, so don't miss this rare opportunity to see her in action. Iris DeMent plays Friday at 8:00 pm at the Freight & Salvage (2020 Addison St., Berkeley) $20.50 adv, $21.50 door FreightandSalvage.orgĀ
