Live and Local

Singer-Songwriter Iris DeMent in Springfield and Bloomington; Flutist Rebecca Johnson in Charleston


To create her latest CD, Sing the Delta, reluctant songwriter Iris DeMent said, “A door kinda opened up, a handful of songs walked through . . . and I knew I had a record.” Iris DeMent will bring her music to Springfield Friday night and to Bloomington on the 26th, and she’ll be my guest on the Friday edition of “Live and Local.”  Also, live in our studio, we’ll hear flutist Rebecca Johnson and pianist Cara Chowning before their recital in Charleston Sunday afternoon.
