From Los Angeles to the hills of East Tennessee, this concert features an evening of awe-inspiring American roots music. Performing from the Skirball’s Taper Courtyard, Joachim Cooder delivers an airy and atmospheric performance alongside his legendary father, Ry Cooder. Playing both original compositions and modern arrangements of Uncle Dave Macon’s old-time country tunes, the two light up the stage with twinkling, indie-infused folk. Then, live from the heartland, Grammy-nominated artist Amythyst Kiah impresses with rich vocals and powerful storytelling. Enjoy the sights and sounds of Appalachia mixed with Kiah’s own captivating blend of rock, country, and blues in this stunning performance.
