Twenty-six years ago Emmylou Harris and her acoustic band the Nash Ramblers performed a three-night stint at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. Those performances, which were live recording sessions for the group’s Grammy Award-winning album “At the Ryman,” helped spearhead efforts to refurbish the century-old former home of the Grand Ole Opry. On May 2, 2017, Harris and the Nash Ramblers returned to the venue for a sold-out show, celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Ryman.
In this new concert, Harris and the Nash Ramblers perform many of the songs that appeared on “At the Ryman,” released in January 1992, just nine days before Harris became an official member of the Opry. The performances include “Guitar Town,” “Half as Much,” “Mansion on the Hill,” “Hard Times,” “Lodi” and more.
