The HawtPlates are a family singing group consisting of Justin Hicks, Jade Hicks, and Kenita Miller-Hicks, who create distinctive vocal works by breaking down folk and vernacular musical forms and reconstituting them into other modes of performance. By playing within and outside of the tradition of black singing styles, repetition, experimentation with text, and deep listening, their style pays homage to how soul music and the black voice can be heard.
This program will run approximately 75 minutes with no intermission.
