Share this event:

A professed Southern Gothic songster based in Johnson City, TN, Amythyst Kiah's ( commanding stage presence is only matched by her raw and powerful vocalsa deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past. A graduate of East Tennessee State University, she studied old time music and music performance, and it proved to be a pivotal moment in her life as she transformed from a long-time closet musician into a well-rounded, captivating performer.  Provocative and coolly fierce, Amythyst Kiahs ability to cross the boundaries of blues and old-time through reinterpretation is groundbreaking and simply unforgettable.

"Amythyst Kiah's secret weapon is her voice. When paired with the natural rawness of the guitar or banjo, her voice claws at the plastic wrap to get at that nugget residing in the deepest recesses of everyones soul." ~

"Kiah is an important and innovative presence in contemporary traditional music. Describing herself as a Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer/songwriter, Amythyst has a repertoire that honors tradition while crossing genres to illuminate many common threads." ~ Sam Gleaves, The Bluegrass Situation

Opening for Amythyst Kiah is Pittsburgh singer-songwriter Mark Williams ( Mark has taught environmental science in the Pittsburgh Public Schools and now teaches at Pittsburgh's Environmental Charter School.  Mark says of himself, "I write music to keep myself together. When life falls apart I find it hard to get out of bed. Life is always falling apart. These songs are a part of my mourning routine. They help me get out of bed. Maybe they will help someone else to do the same." Mark writes about the important topics with a big heart and an acoustic musical style somewhere between Ben Harper and Michael Franti.

"Had the pleasure of hearing Mark Williams perform...  All I can say is powerful!!!"   Drew G.I. Hart, Teacher, Author, Activist (
