Tune in here on Friday, September 25, for performances by Miranda Rae and Naomi Westwater livestreamed straight to your home from the MFA’s Calderwood Courtyard. Each performer plays for 45 minutes, with a 10-minute intermission between sets.
Cambridge-born Miranda Rae is a self-taught R&B vocalist. Growing up in South Florida, she took inspiration from artists such as Sade, Jill Scott, Adele, India.Arie, and Erykah Badu to create a sound all her own. Her second EP, Excuse My Baggage, is available for streaming on all major platforms.
Naomi Westwater is a Jamaica Plain–based singer-songwriter and producer whose work combines Americana and electronic indie music. As a queer woman of color and modern-day mystic, Naomi incorporates empowerment, nature, and magic into her music. She is currently at work on a new EP about race, endometriosis, and climate change in America.
