The talented songwriter, guitarist, and banjoist Amythyst Kiah stopped by Martin Guitars last year and played a short set live in the Martin Guitar Museum. In this video, she plays her original song “Firewater” on a beautiful 1942 Martin D-45. Amythyst is part of Our Native Daughters, the acclaimed collaboration with Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCalla, and Allison Russell and she wrote the song “Black Myself,” which leads off the Songs of Our Native Daughters album and which was nominated for the 2019 Grammy Award for Best American Roots Song. You can see her perform that song in the Martin Museum at this link.
