Singer-songwriter Emmylou Harris comes to town with Her Red Dirt Boys behind a trail of Grammys and recognition for her interpretation of music over 40 years. The latest from Harris is "Hard Bargain," 11 stories of wisdom from one of the best who has ever put words to music.
Why go: The Pines -- who followed up the acclaimed "Tremolo" with "Dark So Gold" -- open for Harris.
Reconsider: January is considered the most depressing month of the year, and you need something a little peppier than The Pines' beautiful yet melancholy "Cry, Cry, Crow."
8 p.m. Friday at Genesee Theatre, 203 N. Genesee St., Waukegan; $45-$85; 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
