Grammy-nominated, Tennessee-based singer-songwriter Amythyst Kiah spans the genres of roots, alt rock, country, folk, blues, and old time music. Rolling Stone magazine called her, “one of Americana’s great up-and-coming secrets.” As a member of Our Native Daughters, an all-women-of-color supergroup, Kiah’s song “Black Myself” earned a Grammy nomination for Best American Roots Song and won Song of the Year at the Folk Alliance International Awards. She has been featured in the New York Times and on NPR’s Mountain Stage.
On Sunday, June 5th, Kiah will perform in the Park’s historic Tobacco Barn, recently restored to host open air events. This intimate show will sell out with just over 200 seats available. Central Kentucky-based old time and blues band, The Possum Queens, will share a hip-shakin’ foot stompin’ opening set. Tickets are available at josephinesculpturepark.org.
Event parking opens at 4pm, with music beginning at 6pm. Grab a cold drink from West Sixth Brewing and barbecue from the Community Que food truck, both JSP favorites. Explore the Park, discovering over 70 artworks across our 30-acres, including new pieces like Sky Chamber from Daniel Shieh, and Nakki by Molly Harrington, only on view seasonally. See conservation efforts in practice through our newly restored meadows.
