    Times (UK): Emmylou Harris "Sang Like an Angel" at London's Apollo
    Rocky Schenck

    Emmylou Harris closed out the UK leg of her European tour this past weekend with stops in Manchester and London. The tour continues on the Continent for the rest of the month, with her first of three stops in Germany beginning tonight at Berlin's Tempodrom.

    Saturday's performance at Manchester's Bridgewater Hall led Manchester Evening News reviewer Yakub Qureshi to write:

    Legend is a term hastily applied in these latter days of talent show revivalism. Emmylou Harris has quietly earned the right to bear the title ... On stage, she plays and sings with the energy and passion of someone half her years. Her clear voice has lost none of its beguiling power—varying from whisper to country power yodel.

    Following her London show at the Hammersmith Apollo, The Times (UK)'s David Sinclair makes note of her exceptional "poise and serenity," describing her as "a regal presence" who "sang like an angel." That review can be found at entertainment.timesonline.co.uk.
