I Am Music Fest to debut with Arie in August
Kitchen says he's starting small - with just a handful of artists given that its Sol Kitchen's first festival. He chose Arie because of her widespread appeal. It marks her first Charlotte appearance in three years.
Kitchen has been bringing cutting edge live soul, R&B, jazz, and hip-hop to town for most of the last decade. He was behind Chuck Brown's annual CIAA gigs. He's brought well known acts like Common, Questlove, Talib Kweli, Esperanza Spalding, Will Downing, Musiq Soulchild, El DeBarge, and Eric Benet to town as well as booking great on-the-rise artists like Alice Smith, Rahsaan Patterson, PJ Morton, Anthony David, Van Hunt, and Vivian Green. Those names alone indicate a promising lineup for I Am Music Fest '12.
Tickets for I Am Music are on sale here or by calling 704-372-1000.
