This weekend you can either indulge in nostalgia with the anniversary of a seminal hip-hop album, or look to the future with a new way of presenting ballet. Plus, a popular blues festival returns.
Ms. Lauryn Hill
Since then, she's been considered one of the modern classics of as a modern day classic of hip-hop and R&B.
On this tour, Hill will be performing songs from that album, though because of her freestyle singing, perhaps not always in the way you remember them. Over the years, Hill's concerts have started late or finished early, so it's best to be ready for the unexpected.
