Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, Richard Thompson Electric Trio 

When: Sat., March 30, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $53–$74

Old Yellow Moon, the debut full-length collaboration between Americana paragons Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, was nearly 30 years in the making. Crowell joined Harris' Hot Band in the mid-'70s, but despite all their harmonies, the two never created an album of their own. The bulk of Old Yellow Moon is worth considerable wait, as it finds Harris in heartbreaking form (the piano stunner "Back When We Were Beautiful") and Crowell in high spirits (the uproarious and upbeat "Bull Rider"). Its best moments, though, are reserved for those two voices, reaching out to one another like old friends and creating a sound that suggests both singers were born into this role. Harris and Crowell co-headline the bill with the Richard Thompson Electric Trio. —Grayson Currin
