Three Girls And Their Buddy

Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin and Buddy Miller Announce A Second Run Of Their Collaborative Shows

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 11, 2008) — Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin and Buddy Miller have announced they will again join forces for a series of collaborative shows in 2008. The “Three Girls and Their Buddy” tour will perform in the Northeast U.S., beginning in Alexandria, VA. on February 3, 2009 at The Birchmere and concluding in Boston, MA. on February 22 at The Orpheum. A New York City show at the newly reopened and remodeled Beacon Theater will take place on February 20th. The “Three Girls and Their Buddy” shows feature all four artists performing onstage together, sharing the songs and stories that have defined their venerated careers.
The four have a long-established history of musical associations, having been in each other’s bands, produced and played on each other’s albums, covered each other’s songs, and guested on each other’s shows many times over the years. Buddy Miller was Emmylou’s band leader in the outfit Spyboy and produced her live album by that name. Patty Griffin’s song “One Big Love” was recorded by Emmylou, who has made appearances on Patty’s last two studio albums. Emmylou, Patty and Buddy – with Gillian Welch and David Rawlings – toured together as Sweet Harmony Traveling Revue, a special run of collaborative shows. Buddy has performed many times over the years with Shawn Colvin, beginning with her inclusion in The Buddy Miller Band in the 80s in New York City and leading up to the These Four Walls tour in the fall of 2006. The group was recently reunited in October for a spirited performance at San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.
