Saturday Emmylou Blogging


Published on Apr 6, 2017
This is a recently discovered television appearance of the magnificent Emmylou Harris in January of 1970. Her 1st album Gliding Bird had just been released in late 1969 to very little acclaim and she had yet to make any impact at all on the national music scene. The first song "Lady Of The Rose" remains unrecorded. "The Fugue For the Ox" is a track off Gliding Bird. In this footage she is 22 years old and 7 months pregnant with her first daughter. At this time her career consisted of playing in coffeehouses in Greenwich Village and it would be more than a year before she'd meet Gram Parsons, which changed her life and career forever.
