DALLAS, TX-

Valerie June, whose Order of Time made Rolling Stone‘s Best of 2017 list, defies classification. The Tennessee native, who’s as magical with a tambourine as she is on banjo, draws from the sprawling roots of Americana. June’s versatility was apparent as she moved fluidly between the textured grooves of “Workin’ Woman Blues” and the ethereal glow of “Astral Plane.” The former, brightened by a horn segue, is a reminder that songs can nourish the soul even when the table is bare. The latter unfurls at a slower pace in a tranquil exploration of other existential planes. Toward the end of her set, June removed her pink embroidered jacket to reveal a red outfit that glimmered in the late afternoon sun. “Everyone has a light inside them,” she said. “It’s why I wear all this sparkly shit, is to remind you all of that.” It was an apt visual accompaniment to her luminous musicianship.”
