Iris Dement – August 9, 2015

Iris Dement  -  Lincoln Center  -  August 9, 2015

This was a part of the same Roots of American Music series as the previous day’s three-set smorgasbord.  Dement was the sole afternoon attraction, but no “Our Town”!  Her current album is based on the poetry of Anna Akhmatova, a Russian active in the early part of the 20th century.  That takes the acquired-taste aspect of whole shebang to a whole other level, beyond Iris’s warbly voice and approach.  Works for me!
