Clark, Russell return to school

Thursday, December 14, 2023 – Brandy Clark and Allison Russell will be the New York University's 2024 Americana Artist-in-Residence at its Steinhardt arts program.

Throughout 2024 spring academic semester, they will be working closely with NYU students through a series of lectures, workshops and classroom visits. Clark and Russell will present, curate and moderate a variety of discussions, workshops, classroom visits and performances.

Clark and Russell are the third and fourth Americana artists to participate in the NYU Artist-in-Residence after Rosanne Cash in 2021-22 and Taj Mahal in 2023.

The Americana Foundation, formed by the Americana Music Association to support Americana music, and NYU are building on this collaboration to educate students on the origins, history and cultural impact of Americana music.
