The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts and Metropolitan State University present “An Evening with Terrance Simien” from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 7 at Midway Campus, room 140.
Dr. Yvonne RB-Banks, professor in the School of Urban Education, will host a discussion and demonstration by the Grammy Award-winning musician. This event is free and open to the public.
Simien’s music incorporates a hypnotic blend of zydeco roots, New Orleans funk, reggae, and Afro-Caribbean sound. He is an expert in American roots music and its history, rural Creole culture, and the challenges artists of color overcome to export their music to audiences around the world.
