The Century of Song concerts have long become an established part of the RuhrTriennale, established but never routine. Once again, the artists invited to participate will be presenting programmes put together exclusively for the RuhrTriennale and including both their own songs in new arrangements as well as favourite material by other songwriters who have played a large part in their lives.

To start the series, legendary singer, songwriter, poet and artist Patti Smith will be making her only concert appearances in Germany at the RuhrTriennale. Playing unplugged, she will be performing current titles as well as important songs (and poems) from throughout her career and paying tribute to the poets, songwriters and composers who have inspired and shaped her.

A further two concerts for this seasons Century of Song are currently in preparation, including a country music night with 2005 Grammy winner Bill Frisell. The precise dates and line-up will be published in June.
