Singer-songwriter Iris DeMent blooms again

Former Kansas Citian Iris DeMent is preparing for a concert this weekend at the Folly Theatre with her husband, Greg Brown, and a new album. The album will be her first since “Lifeline,” a collection of traditional gospel tunes released in 2004, and her first album of original material since the very political “The Way I Should,” released 15 years ago.
