Austin City Limits

Sat. Mar. 26 at 11 p.m. on WKAR-HD 23.1 & STREAMING | Enjoy an hour featuring acclaimed British soul singer and songwriter Yola.

Performing songs from her 2020 Grammy-nominated album, Americana artist Yola makes her solo debut on Austin City Limits. The Bristol native also performs some sparkling renditions of 1970s pop classics.

Yola delivers a knockout performance in an hourlong set featuring highlights from her acclaimed debut Walk Through Fire, which earned her four Grammy nominations, including one for best new artist.

“Yola may well be the best pure singer on the pop music scene today,” according to ACL executive producer Terry Lickona. “She has such an incredible dynamic range, a certain mystical spirit about her, and a devilish sense of humor. What’s not to love?”

Enjoy this performance before the air date at video.wkar.org with a WKAR Passport.
