Janis Ian in Johnson City

Lovely Spouse and I purchased our tickets to see Janis Ian tomorrow night at the Down Home.

She lets you download some her songs for free on her website. Here is she is with Dolly Parton, My Tennessee Hills.

This was her big hit Seventeen. But this is the song that raised eyebrows and told the truth:

Society's Child.


  1. I was in high school at that time and loved her for her songs.

    Society's Child was sooooo controversial then!

    I want to hear about the show!

  2. Just got back from a great performance. She is a very talented songwriter and performer. A great evening.
