Ms. Harris has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to the recordings of many fellow artists.  This was evident as she performed many of her own beautiful songs as well as covers of Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan, Ron Sexsmith, Buck Owens, Townes Van Zandt, and Billy Joe Shaver.

Before leaving the stage, she remarked on the loveliness of the audience and how she wouldn’t expect anything else from Austin.  I’m sure that the audience thought that the poised and elegant Harris was also lovely.
