This year’s showcase features: Ysaye Barnwell — singer, composer, arranger and Sweet Honey In The Rock alum; Ariel Horowitz — violinist, composer, activist; Be Steadwell — vocalist, composer and director; and Yasmin Williams — acoustic fingerstyle guitarist and composer. The evening includes a special tribute to Shirley Childress Johnson, former sign language interpreter for Sweet Honey In The Rock.
