Emmy’s Hard Bargain

Posted April 27th, 2011 by Anna

The foxy silver-maned Emmylou has just released Hard Bargain, her latest from Nonesuch Records. On it is the beautiful elegy she wrote for for my sister entitled ‘Darlin Kate.’ When I first heard it last Winter I broke out in tears and couldn’t listen to it. Kate and Emmy had a special bond and it’s all there in the song. A couple of days before Kate went, I called Emmy to tell her my sister was fading fast but still conscious and she said ‘I’m coming to Montreal right now.’ Within hours, Kate had slid into a coma and I called E. back and said ‘it’s too late. She’s unconscious.’ She said ‘I’m coming anyway.’ Emmy will perform ‘Darlin Kate’ the night of the Kate tributes in NYC, May 12 & 13, Town Hall. Hard Bargain has a lovely funky folky sound that will draw you right in. Emmylou Harris site

    A lovely song by a kind decent woman.
