Front Row

Venue: College of Charleston Cistern Yard

Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 30 minutes


A perennial critics’ favorite who’s been nominated for 17 Grammys, Brandy Clark is “universally revered” among fellow country songwriters, having penned hits for Kacey Musgraves, Band Perry, Darius Rucker, and Miranda Lambert (Los Angeles Times). But Nashville’s sought-after tunesmith is coming into the spotlight after a whirlwind year that included her Broadway debut as co-composer/ lyricist of the Tony Award-winning musical Shucked, the release of her latest self-titled album (produced by close friend and collaborator, Brandi Carlile), and winning the Grammy Award for Best Americana Performance for her haunting hit ballad, “Dear Insecurity.” NPR Music, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Variety, and The Los Angeles Times all included her album on their “Best of 2023” lists with Forbes describing it as “an Americana Masterpiece,” and Variety referring to Clark as “one of America’s treasures.” Rare to see a rising star so comfortable in her own skin and in full command of her storytelling powers; don’t miss Clark’s Spoleto premiere at the Cistern Yard.

Attendance at all events is subject to the Festival security policy.
