Priceless Musical Experience for $20 • The Ready Room • Jan. 21
Margo Price is quintessential country. You could say she’s paying homage to Dolly Parton, Roseanne Cash, Tammy Wynette, and Loretta Lynn, but that’s way too easy—she’s reigniting the flame of country music.
"Hands of Time," the opening track on her album, “Midwest Farmer’s Daughter” is much more than Rolling Stone magazine’s country song of 2016—it’s a heartbreaking autobiographical map that's led Ms. Price to where she is now.
She's got rhythm. She’s got blues. She’s got soul. And she’s got a matter-of-factness that hits like Johnny Cash and Janis Joplin with the cadence of Bob Dylan. She’s a fearless liberal feminist songwriter—the likes of which country music hasn’t seen in decades. Her lyrics transcend genres of music, gender and race—just take a good listen to "All American Made," the title track on her 2017 album.

Since storming the gates of the country scene, Ms. Price has accumulated countless accolades; appeared on "SNL," The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and "Later… with Jools Holland;" and performed at the Glastonbury Festival. She's kind of a big deal. Willie Nelson accompanied her on "Learning to Lose," she's collaborated with Jack White, and Sturgill Simpson played along side Price on her side project, Margo and the Pricetags. She's even partied with Anthony Bourdain.
She's touring in support of her 2017 release “All American Made,” which is quite possibly one of the best shows to roll through St. Louis this year. Don't miss the chance to see her at the The Ready Room—it may be the last time you’ll be able to see her in such an intimate venue. Little Bandit opens.
