Margo Price to perform at Purdue University on Sept. 19
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Country music star Margo Price will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 19 in Loeb Playhouse in Purdue University’s Stewart Center.
The performance is presented by Purdue Convocations with support from the Davis Family Endowment, Friends of Convos Endowment, East End Grill, Rubia Flower Market, Student Concert Committee and Student Fee Advisory Board.
At 6:30 p.m. McKenzie Isom will lead a discussion before the show at 6:30 p.m. in the Purdue Memorial Union West Faculty Lounge.
By 2016, Price was among country music’s most celebrated new artists. Her debut album, “Midwest Farmer’s Daughter,” made numerous top-10 lists; and NPR called it “the hard-won arrival of an artist who feels like she’s always been here.” Her 2017 follow-up, “All American Made,” earned widespread acclaim and a 2019 Grammy nomination for best new artist.
Tickets are $30 for adults and $24 for children 18 years and younger, Purdue students and Ivy Tech Lafayette students. Tickets are available at the Stewart Center box office at 765-494-3933 or 800-914-SHOW. Group tickets are also available to groups of 10 more.
