Inspired by Georgia O’Keefe’s words, the trailblazing, NPR chart-topping Lara Downes has channeled her prodigious creativity and “luscious, moody, and dreamy” (New York Times) sound into an intimate program of solo and ensemble works that pays tribute to women past and present who are composers and poets. Her special guest is multi-instrumentalist/composer/singer and MacArthur “Genius Award” winner Rhiannon Giddens, who, through her own work and her performances as a member of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, embodies precisely the ethos Downes had in mind.

Featuring music by FLORENCE PRICE, MARGARET BONDS, BILLIE HOLIDAY, NINA SIMONE, JOAN BAEZ, JONI MITCHELL, ABBEY LINCOLN, HAZEL SCOTT, and MEREDITH MONK, with world premieres by SARAH KIRKLAND SNIDER, ELENA RUEHR, JULIA ADOLPHE, ANGELICA NEGRON, REENA ESMAIL, LAURA KARPMAN, and EVE BEGLARIAN.
