Iris DeMent’s March 8, 2020 performance was the first concert that VCA was forced to postpone due to COVID. We are ecstatic to turn the page and welcome Iris to Vashon Island for her first performance in the Kay White Hall!
Iris DeMent is an acclaimed singer/songwriter whose 1992 debut Infamous Angel was hailed by Rolling Stone as “an essential album of the 90’s”. Combining elements of folk, gospel and country, her rich lyrical landscapes and captivating music have earned two Grammy nominations and the respect of many of her peers such as John Prine, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell. NPR has called her “one of the great voices in contemporary popular music” and The Boston Globe heralded her 2012 album Sing The Delta to be a “work of rare, unvarnished grace and power…”. In 2017, The Americana Music Association honored Iris with their Trailblazer Award, recognizing a singular artist who forged her own uncompromising path.
