Emmylou Harris, touring with her Red Dirt Boys in support of "Hard Bargain," her first studio album in three years, played a tight, focused and seamless two-hour show at Pier Six Tuesday night. "Hard Bargain" is the third album in Harris's long career to include material mostly written by her. In interviews, she has talked about the autumnal nature of these late-life songs, which mark the passage of time and pause to reflect on exits - like that of the singer Kate McGarrigle - and entrances - a granddaughter, Prudence.

Ask any of the newer female country stars, from Suzy Bogguss to Trisha Yearwood to Pam Tillis, who their main influences are and two names appear again and again: Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris.While Patsy Cline was a bearer of taste and sophistication, introducing elements of jazz and rock to hillbilly music, Emmylou Harris almost single-handedly brought back traditional, hard-core country music with an amazing string of mid-'70s albums.Such works as "Pieces of the Sky" (1975), "Elite Hotel" (1975)

IT'S HARD to pinpoint the best part about last night's Cystic Fibrosis benefit concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion.The four-hour marathon, hosted by local favorites The Hard Travelers, brought together a special group of talented musicians.The performers showed genuine concern for the cause -- a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. And the stellar country and folk music that came at a machine-gun pace sure didn't hurt, either.Seven acts performed throughout the evening, with short breaks and long sets.

Emmylou Harris thinks of it as a dance. The country-pop singer-songwriter has paired her silver-pure voice with some of the best in the business, including Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt, to name a few. And after nearly 40 years of making consistently strong music, Harris is still a sought-after duet, or "dancing," partner. "I've asked people to dance myself," she says, "but people have come to me. I find it inspiring. Every combination of voices is going to be different."

When she was 16 years old and dreaming of a career as a musician, Emmylou Harris sought advice in a letter to a role model of hers, Pete Seeger. She was worried, she confided to the legendary folk singer, that her upbringing had been too sheltered, too full of contentment. With baggage like that, how could she ever hope to sing convincingly about suffering and hardship? Don't trouble yourself, came Seeger's reply; suffering and hardship will find you soon enough. The crack that developed in Harris' voice, familiar to her fans, suggests that Seeger knew what he was talking about.

Most people, it seems fair to say, have never thought of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as being a country band.Sure, they've got fiddles (though they don't call 'em that), and have played with a few pickers in their time. But the BSO's sound isn't exactly twangy, nor are you likely to find its music on the jukebox at your local honky-tonk. So what in blazes is the orchestra doing out at the Rocky Gap Music Festival tonight?Playing Aaron Copland and Buck Owens -- what else?Though the Copland is more in keeping with the orchestra's usual fare, the Owens -- which will be performed with country star Emmylou Harris -- is more typical fare for the Rocky Gap Festival.

There's more to Nashville than country music, although it's hard to ignore the city's most famous industry. I walked into the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, seeking a little culture, and came face to face with the late Gram Parson's cream-colored suit decorated with embroidered marijuana leaves. He wore it on the album cover of The Gilded Palace of Sin when he played with the Flying Burrito Brothers back in 1969. The Frist Center, in a renovated art deco structure built as a post office in 1934, has no permanent art collection but rotates exhibitions.

The dramatic music of Broadway, the precise steps of ballerinas, the flowing brush strokes of Oriental-style painting and the echoing sounds of the Celtic harp will all be on display this spring in Howard County, where more than 100 resident groups contribute to a rich and diverse artistic scene. As the arts community has thrived, local audiences have responded. The county's population increased by 13 percent between 1995 and 2000, but attendance at arts events increased 90 percent during that time, according to ArtsVision: State of the Arts in Howard County 2003, a report sponsored by the Howard County Arts Council.

The jazz acts, artists, dancers, singers and performers roving around Columbia for the past 11 days have packed up and left town -- at least until next year. This year's Columbia Festival of the Arts closed yesterday with two power-packed performances by mime Marcel Marceau, and an afternoon recital by pianist Michael Sheppard, a student at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore. Organizers breathed a sigh of relief and accomplishment after the final performance. Some organizers estimated that more than 30,000 people attended the indoor and outdoor festivities since the festival opened June 15. The event also featured performances by singer Andrea Marcovicci, Les Deux Mondes, ice-dance troupe The Next Ice Age, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, the Eva Anderson Dancers, The Washington Ballet, violinist Mark O'Connor, fiddler Natalie MacMaster, and singer Emmylou Harris.

Looking out at an audience filled with graying fans, Emmylou Harris offered a song Thursday night for the "people who remember when I was a brunette." That surely was almost everyone at the James Rouse Theater at Columbia's Wilde Lake High School, where Harris performed at the Columbia Festival of the Arts for a house packed with long-time devotees, including many members of her family. Harris said she feels at home here, not far from where she grew up outside Washington and just down the road from her father's grave in Clarksville.
