Amythyst Kiah w/ Sam Quinn

November 11, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm Free

Event Navigation

Johnson City-based Amythyst Kiah is a Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer/songwriter who is equally inspired by old-time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Carter Family) as she is R&B and country vocalists of the past (Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mahalia Jackson) and present (Adele, Florence and the Machine, Janelle Monae, Thom Yorke). Her solo album, “Dig,” is raw and sparse, with heavy lyrical content addressing loss, betrayal, and murder. She has opened for such acts as Tim O’Brien and Darrell Scott, The Duhks, Megan Jean and the KFB, and has played the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival 2012 alongside the Ebony Hillbillies and Sparky and Rhonda Rucker, as well as Knoxville’s Rhythm ‘n’ Blooms Festival and Nashville’s Music City Roots. Fresh off the road with The Black Lillies, Sam Quinn will open the show with a few songs. Quinn, who has also toured with this mountain, was a founding member of East Tennessee much beloved band the everybodyfields.
