In American Folk, filmed over 3,500 miles in 14 states, musicians Joe Purdy and Amber Rubarth star as two strangers, both folk musicians, whose fates become intertwined after their plane is grounded in California following the September 11th attacks. Both desperately needing to get back to New York, they embark on a cross-country journey in a 1972 Chevy Van. Along the way, the duo finds solace in their mutual love of classic folk songs, raising their voices with everyday people they meet on the road. They rediscover the healing nature of music and bear witness to a nation of people who lift each other up in the wake of tragedy. The GRAMMY Museum will present a special screening of this film, followed by an intimate conversation moderated by author Paul Zollo featuring Purdy and Rubarth, along with director David Heinz and producers Matt Miller and Fiona Walsh-Heinz. Joe Purdy and Amber Rubarth will perform a brief set following the conversation.

Ahead of the release of his new album, The Snake King, on Jan. 26, the GRAMMY Museum will welcome GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter Rick Springfield to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation and performance. His new album finds Springfield exploring the blues side of his rock & roll, and marks a definite departure from the power pop he has been known for. With 25 million records sold, Springfield has withstood the test of time far better than most critics would ever have imagined, performing nearly 100 concerts around the world every year. He has written and performed some of the best-crafted power pop anthems of the past 40 years, including 17 U.S. Top 40 hits, among them, "Don't Talk to Strangers," "An Affair of the Heart," "I've Done Everything for You," "Love Somebody," and "Human Touch," as well as the 1981 GRAMMY-winning Best Male Rock Vocal Performance No. 1 single, "Jessie's Girl."
