Our free pop-up concert series at with FirstWorks continues this fall with a spirit-lifting line-up in a gorgeous outdoor setting. Following the success of our (safely-distanced) summer launch, we’re thrilled to bring you a new series of live arts experiences spanning a world of styles, from salsa and French Cajun to West African kora and indigenous jazz.
September 19 we are pleased to feature kora player Yacouba Diabate, an accomplished craftsman and musician who brings the virtuosic traditions of the griot, or West African troubadour, from his native Burkina Faso to audiences around the world and right here in Providence.
So grab a lawn chair (or blanket) and enjoy extraordinary artists from the well-spaced painted viewing circles on the Dalrymple Boathouse Lawn (across from the Carousel Village – see map).
Thank you to the City of Providence Parks Department and Department of Arts, Culture, and Tourism, along with hundreds of private donors for making these park programs happen!
