Iris DeMent 

When: Fri., June 18, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $28–$30

She's no coal miner's daughter, but Iris Dement has definitely digested the lessons of Loretta Lynn, singing with a powerful, high lonesome voice informed by gospel. It's an evocative instrument that reaches back to another age. Dement burst onto the scene with 1992's raw, beautiful Infamous Angel, and My Life followed a year later. She surprised people with 1996's politically charged, rock-inflected The Way I Should, then disappeared, releasing only 2004's somber, religiously linked Lifeline in the intervening 15 years. Consequently, her appearances are valued like rare orchids, offering commensurate natural beauty and inspiring similar awe. —Chris Parker
