WMOT: One “of the most vital and conversation-starting African American acts in the field”

They say we should think locally and act globally, and it seems that’s exactly what WMOT has in mind for this year’s AmericanaFest Day Stage. The radio station is partnering with NPR Music and World Café to present a slate of top flight talent across five days, spanning September 11 to 15, the Tuesday to Saturday of this year’s community gathering. (…) 

The Wednesday lineup (…) will feature two of the most vital and conversation-starting African American acts in the field, The War & Treaty and Shemekia Copeland.

By WMOT, before Shemekia’s AmericanaFest performance, Thursday, September 13, in Nashville, Tennessee. Read the full “WMOT Brings Roots Radio To AmericanaFest, Going Global From The Local” story.
