Fourth Friday performance by Aisha Barrow celebrating Black History Month

GUELPH, ON, February 20, 2019: Up-and-coming singer-songwriter Aisha Barrow will perform at Guelph Civic Museum Friday, February 22 as part of the museum’s Fourth Friday concert series, this month presented in partnership with Guelph Black Heritage Society in celebration of Black History Month.

Barrow has a bold and fresh new sound that draws its inspiration from her roots. Born in Saudi Arabia, yet culturally from the Republic of Gambia, she combines the rich musical history of both places with her own unique sound influenced by artists such as Nina Simone, Janet Jackson, Beyoncé and Earth Wind and Fire. It is a mixture of Pop, R&B, rock and traditional Gambian music (Mande Pop).

She currently is involved in musical projects of various genres and has recorded and released a self-titled EP with her band Other Moons. She is in the process of recording a full-length album with Other Moons, as well producing her own solo material.

Admission to the Civic Museum on Fourth Fridays is free after 5 p.m. with concerts beginning at 7 p.m.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street.
