Corinne Bailey Rae: The Stories Behind The Songs

189 189 people viewed this event.

You’ll know her songs, but do you know the stories behind them? Two-time Grammy winner, Corinne Bailey Rae, returns to her Yorkshire roots for a special night celebrating her latest album, Black Rainbows.  

Inspired by her visit to Stoney Island Arts Bank, a cathedral of Black art in Chicago, and meeting with the celebrated artist, Theaster Gates, who created the space, Corinne was transformed, as was her work. The result is Black Rainbows, a deep exploration of generational truth and the long arm of history.  

This is a night like no other. Prepare to be immersed in the resonances of Black Rainbows as Corinne offers a glimpse into her chrysalis transformation and shares the intimate stories that shaped each song.  

This event is co-produced with the British Library as part of Beyond the Bassline: 500 Years of Black British Music.
