    Iris Dement

    Presented by MassConcerts One of the most celebrated country-folk performers of her day, Iris Dement grew up singing gospel music and later explored country, folk, and R&B, drawing influence from Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and Joni Mitchell. Dement made her recording debut in 1992, when her LP Infamous Angel, won almost universal acclaim for her pure, evocative vocal style and spare, heartfelt songcraft. Her third LP, 1996's eclectic The Way I Should, marked a dramatic change not only in its more rock-influenced sound but also in its subject matter; where Dement's prior work was introspective and deeply personal, The Way I Should was fiercely political, tackling topics like sexual abuse, religion, government policy, and Vietnam. In 1999, she collaborated with country man John Prine on his album, In Spite of Ourselves. Dement recorded four duets with Prine that earned her a Grammy nod the following year.
