Gibbes Museum of Art
One-of-a-Kind Musical Performance
Doors open at 6pm, Performance starts at 7pm
Join us for an intimate cocktail affair set to the backdrop of a performance by the two-time Grammy Award–winning musical ensemble: RANKY TANKY. The classically designed Lenhardt Garden and Fellows Reception Hall will be transformed into a cabaret setting for enjoying this concert with libations and lite bites. Ranky Tanky has achieved many firsts for South Carolina’s Gullah community since its formation, by earning yet another Grammy Nomination in 2023. The group’s style of music has been described as, “soulful honey to the ears” by NPR. Self-described global ambassadors, Ranky Tanky performers are passionate about their local culture and community, helping to faithfully preserve the traditions originated by African Americans in coastal South during slavery that are kept alive through the present day. While they have performed on The Today Show, PBS Newshour, Stephen Colbert’s Play at Home, and were featured artists in We The People, Live at the Gibbes will provide a uniquely personal opportunity to experience the group.
Live from the Gibbes is a sponsored event only and will not have tickets available for purchase.
