Dreams come easy, like hazy, gray smoke in black and white with dabs of surreal color in all the wrong places. But we beckon the flying fables without plots with wonderful wishes: “Mister Sandman, bring me a dream; Make him the cutest that I’ve ever seen; Give him two lips like roses and clover; Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.”
Those are the words sung by country music star and 13-time Grammy winner Emmylou Harris, who will be performing a concert April 23. The Emmylou Harris concert is at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin, North Carolina
Mr. Sandman, written by Pat Ballard in 1954, was recorded by Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt in the late 1970s for a proposed trio album. Harris included the song on her 1981 album.
