AMYTHYST KIAH

CURATED BY RHIANNON GIDDENS

SATURDAY | STAGE 2

Amythyst Kiah is described as a 'Southern Gothic' alt-country blues singer/songwriter from Tennessee, whose stage presence and powerful vocals echo her eclectic influences spanning decades. Drawing heavily on old time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Jimmie Rodgers, Ola Belle Reed, Carter Family), inspired by strong R&B and country music vocalists from the '50s-'70s (Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mahalia Jackson, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn) and influenced by contemporary artists with powerful vocal integrity (Adele, Florence and the Machine), Amythyst Kiah is not to be missed.
