Emmylou Harris and friends play DPAC

...Opening act Richard Thompson joined the headliners for an onstage cameo on the latter song. His hour-long opening set had been very fine and quite droll (even his between-song "Thank you"'s were funny), long on guitar fireworks that made his instrument sound like a cast of thousands. But that was nothing compared to Thompson's guitar duel on "Long" with Jedd Hughes, the hotshot young Australian guitarist in the Harris/Crowell band. Hughes did better than most mortals and more than held his own, but Thompson's casual virtuosity still had him shaking his head in wonder afterward.
