Performances and Readings

Kory and Kelsey perform at the Read to Succeed Celebrity Spelling Bee in their hometown of Murfreesboro, TN, fall 2012.

Kory often performs her poetry with her daughter Kelsey, a roots musician, in an act that’s been called “bluegrass rap,” “hillbilly cool,” and “moving, fun, spiritual and sassy.”

The duo debuted at the 2009 Southern Festival of Books and have since performed at libraries, bookstores, museums, school festivals and more.
