Brilliant breakout star Amythyst Kiah performs at Stone Valley Orchard to benefit the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center.
On July 17 at 4PM EDT you are invited to relax on a beautiful 115-acre farm, enjoy family-friendly activities and a very special performance at a socially conscious, safe, and COVID-19 compliant event.
The show will find Amythyst Kiah performing songs from her new collection, Wary + Strange, out June 18 on Rounder Records. Produced by Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers),Wary + Strange arrives as a deeply immersive body of work, endlessly redefining the limits of roots music in its inventive rhythms and textures. With an unforgettable voice that’s both unfettered and exquisitely controlled, Kiah gracefully interlaces political commentary and personal revelation, ultimately offering a raw yet nuanced examination of grief, alienation, and the hard-won triumph of total self-acceptance.
Rolling Stone has hailed Kiah as “one of Americana’s great up-and-coming secrets.” A student at East Tennessee State University’s Bluegrass, Old Time, Country Music program, the Chattanooga-bred singer/songwriter expands on the uncompromising artistry she’s displayed as a member of Our Native Daughters—an all-women-of-color supergroup whose Kiah-penned standout “Black Myself” earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best American Roots Song and won Song of the Year at the Folk Alliance International Awards.
Kiah was has been nominated for three Americana Music Awards. She’s been profiled in the New York Times and included in People Magazine’s “Talented Black Musical Artists on the Rise in 2021″.
