BLACK OPRY REVUE
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2023
Black Opry is a home for Black artists and Black fans of country, blues, folk, and Americana music.
The Black Opry is a collective supporting and promoting Black country, folk, blues, and Americana musicians. When these artists tour, they’re called the Black Opry Revue, which showcases their versatility and diversity.
The lineup for the Carnegie Hall performance includes Justin Reid, Lauren Napier, Whitney Monge, and Roberta Lea!
Country music has been made by and loved by Black people since it’s conception. For just as long, Black people have been overlooked and disregarded in the genre by fans and executives. Black Opry wants to change that. They invite you to discover, support and enjoy Black artists here. 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- they plan on exploring all of it.
They plan to continue the conversation about how to evolve the country music industry and create a space that is both safe for and helpful to Black fans and Black artists. Black Opry invites you to join us as we learn the ins and outs of the country music industry and figure out how they can make each space safer and more inclusive. They are aiming to identify problems and seek solutions.
