Sisterfire Showcase 2019

Roadwork brings the social power of music to the Millennium Stage through the spirit of its Sisterfire Festival. Join us for an intergenerational, multiracial, post-genre hour of womensound.  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.

Presented in collaboration with the Smithsonian Folklife Festival: Social Power of Music.
