The Heights Theater
339 W. 19th St.
Houston, TX  77008
Iris Dement’s upcoming Heights Theater performance is, for Houston, the Americana equivalent of a unicorn sighting. Known for pairing rousing country-folk arrangements with brave social criticism on albums like 1996’s The Way I Should (“Letter to Mom,” “Wasteland of the Free”), Dement has also distinguished herself on several collaborations with John Prine, including Ernest Tubb’s “Who’s Gonna Take the Garbage Out” on the latter’s 2016 duets album For Better, or Worse. The reason Dement is making her way to Houston, at last, is The Trackless Woods (Flariella), which adapts several works by long-suffering Russian poet Anna Akhmatova (1889-1966) for just piano and voice; Dement recorded the project in her living room. Expect the same kind of intimate atmosphere Saturday night, where her aching vocals and stirring lyrics should raise plenty of goosebumps.
