Last summer, NPR Music and Lincoln Center radically changed how we talk about the history of popular music with the publication of the 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women list and a live show at Lincoln Center Out of Doors celebrating those albums. This marked the beginning of the Turning the Tables project, a challenge to think bigger about music's past, present, and future by highlighting voices often relegated to its margins. This year, NPR's Turning the Tables Live: 21st-Century Edition shifts focus toward a new generation of artists claiming center stage. To celebrate, we present a night of music and conversation with Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum recording artist and singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen; visionary Chicago R&B artist and poet Jamila Woods; Americana supergroup I'm With Her; and more.

“Whizzing, industrial-strength pop songs that raid the musical closets of Cyndi Lauper and Prince.”
Time on Carly Rae Jepsen
“A singular mix of clear-eyed optimism and Black girl magic.”
Pitchfork on Jamila Woods
“Searing musicianship and tender vocals…a mesmeric blend that seems to operate as a single, multi-piped instrument.”
Guardian (U.K.) on I’m With Her
