ICON | Emmylou Harris


Photo of Emmylou Harris via Natkin.

I thought of Emmylou Harris tonight as a tomboy icon upon listening to First Aid Kit and their tribute song "Emmylou". Good listening.

I'm from the generation that was "corn fed" on Emmylou, Graham Nash, Joni Mitchell, et al.(although,definitely NOT fed this by our moms!) and First Aid Kit would fit right in with that group of artists. Loved it!!
