Both groundbreaking solo artists in the country-Americana sphere for the past two decades, sisters Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer bring their long-awaited live collaboration to The Appel Room. The performance follows the August 2017 release of their first joint studio album, Not Dark Yet, which NPR called “a revelation.” With “immaculate, blood-kin harmony” (Rolling Stone), they reinvigorate the songs of the Louvin Brothers, Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, and Nirvana, and craft a beautiful original, "Is It Too Much," which explores the heartbreak of a shared past, the divergent roads they took, and the natural bond that leads them back to each other.
“Their voices interweave majestically on cover versions that stretch with surprising ease from bluegrass to grunge.”– Guardian (U.K.)
“Groundbreakers in the free zone between country music and what's come to be called Americana, Lynne and Moorer have long been extolled for their exceptional strength and vision, as both songwriters and vocalists.”– NPR
