Amythyst Kiah Outdoor Concert

August 27, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE

The season will kick-off on Friday, August 27 at 6 p.m. with a free alt-rock and roots concert by Amythyst Kiah as she performs outside on the Weis Center Plaza. Tickets are not required.

The Exchange’s Art Cart will be on site from 5:30-7 p.m. with special all-ages activities.

Amythyst Kiah’s debut, Wary + Strange, marks the glorious collision of two vastly different worlds: the iconoclastic alt-rock that first sparked her musical passion, and the roots/old-time-music scene where she’s found breakout success in recent years, including recognition from Rolling Stone as “one of Americana’s great up-and-coming secrets.”

Along with tapping into the vibrant musicality she honed, in part, through her studies in East Tennessee State University’s Bluegrass, Old-Time and Country Music program, the Chattanooga, Tenn.-bred singer/songwriter expands on the uncompromising artistry she’s displayed as a member of Our Native Daughters, an all-women-of-color super group. Its Kiah-penned standout “Black Myself” received a Grammy nomination for Best American Roots Song and won Song of the Year at the Folk Alliance International Awards.

Kiah was included in People magazine’s “Meet the Talented Black Musical Artists Taking over 2021.”
