GRAMMY Museum August 2020 Content Lineup: Margo Price, Pete Yorn, Bright Eyes, Ava Max, Kiana Ledé & Much More
The GRAMMY Museum has announced the next round of new and never-before-released digital content to be shared every week throughout August 2020. As the physical location in Los Angeles remains closed until further notice in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the GRAMMY Museum will continue its digital initiatives, including the newly announced Spotlight Saturdays series.
Highlights for next month's programming include new, intimate sit-down interviews with artists and musicians recorded via Zoom, as part of the Museum's Public Programs digital series, with breakout country star Margo Price, alternative legend Pete Yorn, pop sensation Ava Max, indie icons Bright Eyes, reggae legends Toots And The Maytals and several others.
Launching this weekend (Aug. 1) at their Digital Museum, the GRAMMY Museum's new Spotlight Saturdays series will feature intimate sit-down interviews and performances via digital conferencing with up-and-coming artists. The series kicks off with an exciting class of emerging acts including platinum-selling R&B artist Kiana Ledé, New Zealand pop star BENEE, rising L.A. rapper Duckwrth and others.
On August 7, the GRAMMY Museum will also release a new digital exhibit, "Rhymes & Reasons: The Music Of John Denver," with several photo slideshows.
In addition to the new content released during August, GRAMMY In The Schools Mini-Lessons will be posted on Thursdays.
Since the GRAMMY Museum opened 12 years ago, it has offered more than 900 Public Programs. The Museum continues to release digital educational content and lesson plans as part of the GRAMMY In The Schools Knowledge Bank, continuing its mission of paying tribute to our musical heritage and bringing our community together through music.
