Fish Creek, Wis. (May 2, 2022) – On May 13, Grammy-nominated songwriter Amythyst Kiah will present a solo concert at Door Community Auditorium (DCA). The concert, presented in partnership with Write On Door County and their Health & Healing Writer’s Conference, will double as a fundraiser for Ukrainian war relief efforts. All ticket sales above and beyond the artist’s fee will be donated to Razom, a GuideStar Gold rated non-profit organization providing critical humanitarian war relief and recovery.
Rolling Stone calls Amythyst Kiah “one of Americana’s great up-and-coming secrets.” With an unforgettable voice that’s both unfettered and exquisitely controlled, the Tennessee-bred singer/songwriter expands on the uncompromising artistry she most recently revealed as part of Our Native Daughters—an all-women-of-color supergroup whose Kiah-penned standout “Black Myself” earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best American Roots Song and won Song of the Year at the 2019 Folk Alliance International Awards. Kiah’s singing, songwriting, and guitar work are raw yet nuanced examinations of grief, alienation, and the hard-won triumph of total self-acceptance.
Kiah’s fellow songwriter Allison Russell was slated to perform the concert as well, but recently pulled out of the date due to her participation in the Juno Awards.
The show begins at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 13. Tickets range from $30 to $55 and are still available. Visit the DCA website for more information about current Covid protocols. Advance tickets are recommended and can be made through the DCA box office, located at 3926 Highway 42 in Fish Creek. The box office is open Monday-Friday, 12-5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in person, on the phone at (920) 868-2728, or online at www.dcauditorium.org.
