About The Event
7:30 PM concert (galleries and bar open 5-7:30 PM)
Grace Askew (NBC’s The Voice, John Lennon Songwriting Contest) performs an intimate in-gallery concert as part of the Walter Anderson Museum of Art’s Southern Songwriter Series celebrating Deep South storytelling through art and sound.
A sixth-generation Memphian and self-proclaimed highway child, Askew is a powerhouse talent with nearly a decade of touring under her belt, has collaborated with the likes of Joe Leathers (Guy Clark, Kenny Chesney), and has caught the attention of brands like Stetson, Wrangler, and Tecovas Boots, all of which have signed her on as a model/spokeswoman.
Growing up to the humming lullaby of the nearby interstate, Askew fell asleep as a child to dreams of all the places she too would travel to one day. Poetic that she now takes her place beneath Walter Anderson’s iconic skiff to add her voice to the legacy of intrepid creative adventurers.
Askew’s Faulknerian Southern-Gothic storytelling style, evocative lyrics, and electric presence have earned her acclaim from Spin - “Astoundingly defiant”; Rolling Stone - “Raw, real and righteous”; and CMT.com - "...one of the most prolific songwriters ... A Bobbie Gentry incarnate who is also the first of her kind, Askew is Dolly Parton-level creative.”
Tickets: $10; $5 for Museum members
