We welcome back Malian singer and guitarist, Vieux Farka Touré. The son of Grammy-winning musician Ali Farka Touré, Vieux’s globally-minded music blends traditional African melodies and instrumentation with modern electric guitar and rock structures. His 2017 release, Samba (meaning second son in his native Songhai) was recorded in front of a live studio audience in Woodstock, New York.

  • Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
  • This performance is primarily standing room only. Limited seating is available upon advance request. We are committed to offering inclusive, engaging experiences for people of all abilities. To request accommodations to enhance your visit, please contact or call 412.237.8354.
