New to the Art Charleston calendar is Live from the Gibbes, a cocktail event paired with a not-to-be-missed musical performance. We are pleased to announce this year’s performers will be Grammy Award nominated RANKY TANKY. A Gullah phrase meaning “get funky,” Ranky Tanky, has achieved many firsts for South Carolina’s Gullah community since its formation, by earning yet another Grammy Nomination for Best Regional Roots Music Album in 2022. Ranky Tanky’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 the coastal South during slavery that are kept alive through the present day. They have performed on The Today Show, PBS Newshour, Stephen Colbert’s Play at Home, and were featured artists in We The People, to name a few.

Live from the Gibbes is a sponsored event only and will not have tickets available for purchase.
