An Evening with The Kanneh-Masons

We are delighted to welcome Kadiatu, Aminata and Konya Kanneh-Mason back to Newark to end our Festival and share an evening of their wonderful music with us.

Tonight’s performance will focus on Aminata and Konya performing; in addition Kadiatu will be in conversation with Tim Rideout to introduce the evening and discuss her memoir about her remarkable family – The House of Music.
