About the Program
Amythyst Kiah, whose rock inflected country compositions redefine the limits of roots music to represent the influence of black musicians, will perform three acoustic numbers, including her breakout hit “Black Myself”. In an interview with Dwandalyn Reece, Associate Director of Curatorial Affairs, Kiah will discuss her highly anticipated album, Wary + Strange and her belief that music helps her listeners recognize the intersection of historic and contemporary social justice challenges.
This program is generously supported by Ford Motor Company.
Amythyst Kiah is a graduate of East Tennessee State University, where she completed the Bluegrass, Old Time, and Country Music Studies program. She is a member of Our Native Daughters. Her single “Black Myself” from Songs of Our Native Daughters was nominated for a Grammy. Her debut album, Wary + Strange, will be released in June 2021.
