Tickets are now available to Bryn Mawr students for the free performance at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7, at Goodhart Hall by Hepburn Medalist Patti Smith.
Patti Smith is an American singer-songwriter, poet, and visual artist, who became a highly influential member of the New York City punk rock movement with her 1975 debut album Horses. Called the "Godmother of Punk," her work was a fusion of rock and poetry. Smith's most widely known song is "Because the Night," which was co-written with Bruce Springsteen and reached number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1978. In 2005, Patti Smith was named a Commandeur of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture, and in 2007, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On November 17, 2010, she won the National Book Award for her memoir Just Kids. She is also a recipient of the 2011 Polar Music Prize.
