This January, we invite you to share a vibrant and intimate four-course meal inspired by the work of singer-songwriter Madison McFerrin. Guests will enjoy an entirely plant-based and gluten-free four-course meal followed by a musical performance by Madison McFerrin. This meal is created as a celebration, a dance and an offering. This meal is created for you. If you are a low-income person of color interested in a sliding scale ticket, please email us at blackfeastdinner@gmail.com and we will do our best to accommodate you. We are able to make sliding scale tickets available through the support of our community.

ABOUT MADISON MCFERRIN Madison McFerrin is an independent singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY. In December of 2016, she quietly introduced her soulful take on a cappella to the world when she self-released Finding Foundations: Vol. I. After one listen, tastemaking DJ Gilles Peterson snatched up her standout track, “No Time to Lose,” for his Brownswood Bubblers compilation. Leading up to her sold-out debut show at Joe’s Pub, the New York Times remarked how her sound “shows wonderful vocal dexterity, deftly swerving from sharp, clearly enunciated staccato bursts to fluttery, free-form melismata.” In February of 2018, she gave her listeners more of her distinctive sound that Questlove dubbed “soul-appella” when she self-released Finding Foundations: Vol. II. Her SXSW 2018 debut led legendary KCRW DJ Anne Litt to remark, “there’s some sort of joy and beauty in the way that she performs that really drew me in all that much more.” Pitchfork Magazine followed this up by declaring, “Madison McFerrin is making a cappella cool again” in a Rising Artist profile. She subsequently performed at Pitchfork’s Rising Artist showcase at Northside Fest, OctFest, Paris Avant Garde showcase and the inaugural Midwinter Event at the Art Institute of Chicago. Along with these performances, Madison has also dazzled European crowds with her one-woman show of looping hypnotic harmonies live from London to Poland. ........................................................................
