The Stone Age Institute, through a grant from the Kaman Foundation, is proud to present Janis Ian. Janis will be giving a Master Class in Artistry to be held at the Monroe County Public Library Auditorium in Bloomington on March 2nd, 2020 at 7pm. This event is free and open to the public but tickets will be required to attend. Tickets are available in person or online through the Buskirk-Chumley Box Office.

A three time Grammy award-winner, Janis wrote her first song at twelve, was published at thirteen, and recorded her self-penned hit "Society's Child" at the age of fourteen. The song went on to ignite a national controversy, landing her in Time, Newsweek, Life Magazine, and on the Tonight Show.

In the 70s she had an enormous hit with "At Seventeen", became the first musical performer on Saturday Night Live, earned multiple platinum records in the United States, Japan (where she is called "the mother of female songwriters"), Australia, Europe, the UK, and South Africa. Her songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Celine Dion, Hugh Masakela, Bette Midler, Chet Atkins, John Mellencamp, Nina Simone, Glen Campbell, and Cher.
