Twin Cities-based artist Pavielle French first joined Garrett and Scott in season one as her career was beginning to bloom. She returns to TRILLOQUY this week to talk about her new album, SOVEREIGN, which explores Black rejection of white supremacy, a renewed view of "classic" music and a message: "You cannot give me my rights". She also speaks with Garrett about her collaborations with local orchestras, and its context in the fight for racial equity in arts spaces. Scott highlights #GayCarmen, and Garrett addresses the rejection of a Jimi Hendrix composition in an English orchestral space. The guys close by affirming the humanity of Haitian immigrants and urging arts programmers to do what they can, artistically.
