Chris Young has accomplished more by 28 than some artists do in a lifetime. Already a Grammy-nominated recording artist, he’s also a dynamic live performer consistently in demand, an international ambassador for his genre and a talented songwriter with five number one hits to his name. Now, on the cusp of his fourth album, A.M., the man known for his classic baritone and melt-your-heart ballads has suddenly revealed himself to be king of the good time, too, with the lead single “Aw Naw” electrifying fans and storming up the charts.

DANCE, FAMILY FUN, FOOD, FREE, MUSIC, THEATRE, SPECIAL EVENTS
A celebratory evening of music, spectacle, art, and food capping four days of activities celebrating FirstWorks 10th Anniversary. The free public celebration brings the world to Providence with never-seen-here-before performances from Australia, Italy, Morocco, Mali, and Rhode Island. The FirstWorks Urban Carnevale turns all eyes to the night sky with Australia’s Strange Fruit, a troupe of daredevils suspended high above the crowd within illuminated globes; fires up the night with ancient rhythms and wild dance by Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino, new generation masters of southern Italy; and introduces the exotic gypsy spirit of Morocco with the funk/jazz blend of Ribab Fusion, the Berber culture's one-string answer to the legacy of Jimi Hendrix. This not-to-be-missed party also features a rare North American appearance by charismatic Malian singing sensation Oumou Sangaré (presented in collaboration with Providence’s Afrika Nyaga 6th Annual Festival); and 100 voices joining in a preview of RPM Voices’ RI-Sounding Voices, a harmonic convergence of choruses from across Rhode Island. Audiences will feast their eyes on visual arts from Providence's The Avenue Concept, a top emerging arts organization marrying public art and civic concerns, watch Tape Art transform a building facade, express their deepest hopes and dreams in a pre-Carnevale creative and spiritual ritual with The Providence Peace Flags Project, and marvel at FirstWorks Rising Stars, young virtuosos performing their cultural traditions.
