The Black Opry Revue

Date

Fri Jun 16 2023
Expired!

Time

7:30 pm

Black Opry is a home for Black artists and Black fans of country, blues, folk, and Americana music. Country music has been made by and loved by Black people since it’s conception. For just as long, we have been overlooked and disregarded in the genre by fans and executives. Black Opry wants to change that. We invite you to discover, support and enjoy the Black artists that make magic in this space. One of the most valuable aspects of country music is its versatility and diversity in sound. Country, blues, folk, and Americana music often overlap or weave together- these artists explore all of those sounds and intersections. The Black Opry Revue showcases the diversity in sound and stories that Black artists offer to these genres.

Featured artists:

Garry Blackchild
Tylar Bryant
Destinie Lynn
Denitia
Larysa Jaye

 

We are Earthseed  Black Arts Alliance New Mexico, a Black-led organization inspired by the science fiction of the great Octavia Butler. Earthseed focuses on centering and amplifying Black voices in Northern New Mexico as well as collaborating with Indigenous artists, artists of color, and the city’s arts community as a whole. We believe artists are both at the forefront of change and are critical to the preservation of culture. We believe Black art has enormous healing potential and is a powerful tool for necessary communication, expression, and validation!
