When: Sun., April 22, 8 p.m. 2018
Margo Price is all about candor. On her albums All American Made and Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, the country singer riffs unambiguously about complex issues such as gender-based pay discrimination, the collapse of the American middle class and hypocrisy within the music industry. Fully accented with instrumental sundries such as accordion and pedal steel, the Nashville songwriter’s music shares the old-school Americana twang of Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson, two of her biggest heroes. In fact, Nelson makes a guest appearance on her surging ballad “Learning to Lose.” Price performs on Sunday, April 22, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Aaron Lee Tasjan opens.
