Amythyst Kiah is a Tennessee-raised singer, songwriter, and musician who brings her unforgettable voice and unique sound to the stage. Her musical style cuts across genres. Kiah’s musical expression and songwriting reflects a raw yet nuanced examination of grief, alienation, and the hard-won triumph of total self-acceptance. Her standout song “Black Myself” earned a Grammy nomination for Best American Roots Song and won Song of the Year at the 2019 Folk Alliance International Awards.

Starting out the evening will be the Foreign Landers, a unique transatlantic husband and wife folk duo. Mandolinist David Benedict grew up in South Carolina and banjoist Tabitha Agnew Benedict in Northern Ireland. Their authenticity and originality in songwriting is accompanied with the additional accolades such as receiving Instrumentalists of Year Momentum Awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association.
