Emmylou Harris / Yo La Tengo


August 8th, 2001 ~ Gifted singer Emmylou Harris takes a new trip down old country roads as the self-searching "Red Dirl Girl." We speak with her about growing up between South and North, her days on the road with Gram Parsons, and her atmospheric music today. Also, the purposefully unrooted band Yo La Tengo of Hoboken, New Jersey tracks their 15 years of luminous music and improvisatory life.
