Excerpt

While at SXSW last week, Emmylou Harris performed songs from her forthcoming album, Hard Bargain, at the IFC Crossroads House. "The legendary singer's crooning countrified voice swirled over the scene like a cloud," says IFC, "entrancing everyone who heard it." The show will be broadcast soon on the IFC cable channel. In the mean time, IFC.com has posted three videos from the event, including an interview with Ted Leo and a performance of a song off Hard Bargain, all of which you can watch here.

As noted earlier this week in the Nonesuch Journal, Emmylou Harris made quite a splash at the SXSW Music Conference in Austin, Texas, last week, introducing songs from her forthcoming album, Hard Bargain, at showcases, on the radio, and with a performance at the IFC Crossroads House that streamed live online and will be broadcast at a later date on the IFC cable channel. In the mean time, IFC.com has posted three videos from Harris's visit to the Crossroads House, which you can watch below.

"The legendary singer's crooning countrified voice swirled over the scene like a cloud, entrancing everyone who heard it," writes IFC's Melissa Locker. "Harris lulled the crowd into a state of sheer awe. The singer and guitarist played songs off her new album Hard Bargain and showed these SXSW kids a thing or two about how a legend is made."

The first two videos come from an interview Harris gave with Ted Leo, in which the two discuss her career, her extensive catalog, and how the new album fits in with that. She also answers questions from the audience via the then-live online stream, including her picks of favorite new bands. First on her list: her label mates The Low Anthem. "I just think they're extraordinary," she says, "so inventive and so original."

Here are the two parts of her interview with Leo:


And here is Harris's IFC performance of the Hard Bargain tune "Six White Cadillacs":


Hard Bargain is available for pre-order in the Nonesuch Store with a manuscript lyric sheet of the opening track, "The Road," a number of which will be signed by Harris. To reserve your copy, head to the Nonesuch Store now.
