Vermont Public’s Brave Little State “Homegoings” Concert hosted by Myra Flynn
Homegoings, a series from Vermont Public’s podcast Brave Little State, features conversations with artists of color who live in Vermont — about Black grief, resilience and art. On February 11, some of the artists featured in the series will join forces for a soulful evening of performance-art and conversation.
DonnCherie is a Burlington-based, soul-folk singer-songwriter whose first love was the blues. She’s a model, a dancer, and a practicing witch. She’s also a bookkeeper for artists of color in Vermont. She says as a Black artist in this state, your only job is to show up as yourself.
Senayit Tomlinson is a singer/songwriter/producer whose music is infectious, groove-based, alternative, free-form rock and soul with soaring vocals and melodic hooks. She both lives and creates her music on a property that spans across the Connecticut River, from Bradford, Vermont to Orford, New Hampshire.
Liza Phillip is a painter and musician from Bethel. They paint monsters. The monsters have no gender and represent all people.While Liza says their art is for everyone, it is a communication of their unique lived experience. It is not just to look at. It is to process.
