Brandee Younger

September 29, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Come hear how the sonically innovative harpist, Brandee Younger, is revolutionizing harp for the digital era. Over the past fifteen years, she has worked relentlessly to stretch boundaries and limitations for harpists, working with cultural icons including Common, Lauryn Hill, John Legend, and Moses Sumney. In 2022, she made history by becoming the first black woman to be nominated for a Grammy award for Best Instrumental Composition. That same year, she was also nominated for an NAACP Image Award. Her most recent album, Brand New Life, includes Younger’s long time collaborator and friend, Makaya McCraven, who will also be gracing our stage this season. Younger has been inspired by a small but mighty group of black women harpists, including Sarah Lawrence from her hometown, Ann Hobson-Pilot, Dorothy Ashby, and Alice Coltrane.

All seating is general admission.
