Loeb Playhouse

Shervin Lainez

The folk trio, I’m With Her, plays one of just two Indiana performances this evening at Purdue. The all-female group is still something of a rarity within the largely male-dominated genres of folk and bluegrass music. And the name I’m With Her is still much more associated with another woman.
