When: Sat., May 21, 8 p.m. 2016
Brandy Clark has penned country hits for the likes of Kacey Musgraves, the Band Perry, Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Keith Urban and Reba McEntire, among others. But, unlike the vapid pop fare that has overtaken country in recent years, Clark writes with a keen ear and reverence for the genre’s traditions. That’s evident in her own widely acclaimed albums. Her 2013 debut, 12 Stories, scored two Grammy nominations and was lauded by the likes of Rolling Stone, NPR and the New Yorker for its cunning, intelligent twists on country convention. Touring in advance of a new album, Clark plays the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington on Saturday, May 21.
Price: $15/17. AA
