Margo Price to perform Down by the Riverside
Price, a longtime fixture of the East Nashville music community, has made a name for herself in recent years following the debut of her first solo album, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter. The album, released by Jack White's Third Man Records, was ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the top 20 albums of 2017.
In recent years, Price has made appearances on NPR, Saturday Night Live, Colbert, Fallon and CBS This Morning, while also sharing stages and bills with the likes of Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris and Chris Stapleton.
She will be joined by opener Almighty American on her stop to Rochester. The Minnesota-based group includes Century High graduate Michael Gay.
