The Black Opry revue 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 its conception. For just as long, Black artists have been overlooked and disregarded in the genre by fans and executives. Black Opry wants to change that. This show invites 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. Featuring singers and songwriters in the round, the Black Opry Revue showcases the diversity in sound and stories that Black artists offer to a genre that has often ignored them. Lineup for this show: Aaron Vance, Tylar Bryant, Julie Williams, Nikki Morgan, and Sug Daniels.
