Free. Clemmons Family Farm and Catamount Arts are pleased to announce Samirah Evans, known for her dynamic and soulful approach to jazz and blues, in St. Johnsbury, as part of the Facing the Sunrise Black Performing Arts Series. The series aims to engage audiences with stellar performances that celebrate and teach the Black Experience with positive and uplifting messages from the Black artist community.
The concert will feature selections composed or popularized by black artists. The song selections will paint a picture of our history from 400 years ago illustrated by Nat Adderley’s “Work Song” to selections celebrating the history we are making today such as Georgia on Mind popularized by Ray Charles. Plus, songs of understanding and hope for the future of humanity such as “I wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free” popularized by Nina Simone. In addition, there will be traditional and original songs performed that will give you a taste of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz where Samirah Evans hailed before moving to Vermont.
Location: ArtPort, Green Mountain Mall, 2000 Memorial Drive, St. Johnsbury, VT
