On Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 7:30 p.m., the Midland College Foundation and the Phyllis and Bob Cowan Performing Arts Series will present "An Evening with Emmylou Harris." A 14-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient, Emmylou Harris’ contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008 and earned a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award in 2018.

Harris is one of the most admired and influential women in music. Few artists have achieved such honesty or maturity in their writing. A longtime social activist, Harris has lent her voice to many causes. She has performed at Lilith Fair, helping promote feminism in music and organizing several benefit tours to support the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation. Harris is an avid supporter of animal rights and is actively involved in Bonaparte’s Retreat, the dog rescue.

The concert will take place at the Al G. Langford Chaparral Center, 3600 N. Garfield, Midland TX 79705. It is free and open to the public.

The Phyllis and Bob Cowan Performing Arts Series was begun in 1999 with the establishment of an endowment by Phyllis and Bob Cowan. Twice a year, the performing arts series presents events that will augment and enhance the rich tradition of excellence within the Midland community.
