Southern gothic alt-country blues singer Amythyst Kiah has a commanding stage presence, only matched by her raw and powerful vocals—a deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past. In 2018 Kiah was invited to tour with Grammy Award-winning artist Rhiannon Giddens and the Indigo Girls, playing a number of dates with both acts across the United States. Giddens then invited her to be part of a project for Smithsonian Folkways Recordings.
The album “Songs of Our Native Daughters,” released in February 2019, shines new light on African-American women’s stories of struggle, resistance, and hope. For Amythyst's intimate concert at the Stevens Center, the audience will be seated on stage with her.
