An Exclusive Performance of the Legendary Album: Wrecking Ball

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Cut in Nashville and New Orleans with a cast of musicians including producer Daniel Lanois and multi-instrumentalist Malcolm Burn, 1995’s Wrecking Ball established Harris’ credentials as a Nashville singer willing to take chances with aural quality.Lanois’ soft-focus production style added nuance to songs by the likes of Neil Young, Dave Olney, Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams and Jimi Hendrix, and Wrecking Ball garnered Harris critical respect and a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Recording.If the average Nashville country record depends upon perfect licks, Wrecking Ball works its magic through a combination of sonic savvy and inspired song selection.Tonight’s show features Harris and Lanois along with Burn, drummer Brian Blade and bassist Jim Wilson, and it should be interesting to see these players re-create the record in its entirety. The show benefits the Nashville nonprofit Crossroads Campus and its efforts to give disadvantaged people opportunities to care for homeless animals.
