The Black Opry will be coming to the Buskirk Chumley Theater on January 19, 2023, according to an announcement sent to the Bloomingtonian this week.
“The Black Opry is an organization that was created to platform Black artists making country, Americana, blues and roots music. I founded the organization in 2021 and it quickly took off and evolved into not just a website but an entire community of artists and fans as well as a touring revue. We have so far performed over 80 dates throughout the country, putting about 100 artists on stages. These hardworking and talented artists have not previously had a platform to share their work and have thrived in each opportunity they’ve been presented with. We’ve performed at many amazing festivals including CMA Fest, Americanafest, and Newport Folk Fest as well as been featured in Rolling Stone, Grammy.com, CMT Hot 20, Kelly Clarkson show and more.”
