Old friends: Em­my­lou Harris and Rod­ney Crow­ell

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Rod­ney Crow­ell wrote “Blue­bird Wine,” a track on Em­my­lou Harris’ ma­jor-la­bel de­but solo al­bum, Pieces of the Sky (1975). Af­ter fall­ing in love with the song on his demo tape, she made him a mem­ber of her Hot Band, and the two friends have been play­ing to­gether for more than 40 years, dur­ing which time they’ve each re­leased nu­mer­ous al­bums and won mul­ti­ple Grammy Awards, yet it took them un­til 2013 to re­lease an al­bum of duets to­gether, Old Yel­low Moon. Now on tour for their sec­ond duets al­bum, The Trav­el­ing Kind, the pair plays at the Santa Fe Opera (seven miles north of Santa Fe on U.S. 84/285) at 7:30 p.m. on Mon­day, Aug. 31, in a ben­e­fit con­cert for the Santa Fe An­i­mal Shel­ter. Their mu­si­cian­ship and ob­vi­ous rap­port guide the show with a give-and-take that Harris has likened to a dance. Tick­ets, $31 to $106, are avail­able at www.hold­myt­icket.com or by call­ing 505-886-1251. — Jen­nifer Levin
