You are invited to the hottest new jazz scene in town! Once a month, across the entire season, The Edye will be transformed into a club scene featuring up-and-coming jazz & blues artists you’ll want to get to know. The Reverend Shawn Amos and the house band to perform at select blackbox @ the edye shows.
In celebration of African American History Month, blackbox curator, The Reverend Shawn Amos, returns to the stage for an evening of songs and storytelling — presenting songs from his album, Harlem, for the first time in ten years. The American roots song cycle tells the story of 1920s black Americans’ migration from the south to Harlem. Amos’ album was inspired by the artists, songs and legacy of the Harlem Renaissance.
Jazz & Blues is made possible by a generous gift from Richard and Lisa Kendall. blackbox @ the edye at The Broad Stage is made possible in part by a generous gift from Ann Petersen.
