Twice Grammy-Nominated Americana / country star Iris DeMent will visit Shetland following her headlining appearance alongside Rodney Crowell at the ‘Southern Fried Festival’ in Perth – her only Scottish date bar that appearance.

 Perhaps best known through her classic song ‘Our Town’, from her equally classic debut album ‘Infamous Angel’, DeMent has released six successful and hugely acclaimed albums to date, together with prominent appearances on albums by the likes of Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Nanci Griffiths and various other country legends.

 Her songs have also appeared in several movies including the remake of ‘True Grit’, the ‘Horse Whisperer’ and ‘Songcatcher’ – in which she also played the character Rose Gentry.

 DeMent’s Shetland debut promises to be another of those ‘not-to-be missed’ events!!!
