Interview and Performance: Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
Fri, Sep 15 12:00 pm
Though they have sung together since childhood, sisters Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer each pursued solo careers for over twenty years. With Not Dark Yet (out August 18), they collaborate on a recording for the first time, blending their vocals on nine covers and an original tune written together. Their distinctive voices join in effortless sibling harmony and their repertoire nods to eclectic influences, from the Louvin Brothers to Nirvana. Lynne has released over a dozen records and won a Grammy for Best New Artist. Moorer’s nine albums have earned her nominations for Grammys, Oscars, and Americana awards. The duo will perform songs from the new album and talk with NPR Music’s Ann Powers about the album, the creative process, and sharing music as siblings. Following the program, Lynne and Moorer will sign copies of Not Dark Yet, available for purchase at the Museum Store. This program, presented in partnership with the Americana Music Association, takes place in the Museum's Ford Theater.
