Young Americans woke up to their musical heritage in the1960s when British bands began to interpret classic blues and rock and roll tunes, with a nod to their originators, and bring the music back to the U.S. Some of the greatest British rock guitarists of the last generation got their start with American roots music.
This year, Ladies Sing the Blues will honor that tradition by covering the work of British blues rockers, like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, the Animals, and the Rolling Stones. Be prepared for a night of raucous, rocking blues music, with soaring vocals and burning guitars!
Joining curator, Joanie Cere are Zenobia, Stephanie Hatfield, and Kari Simmons. Backing up the singers are Larry Freedman (keys), Darin Goldston (guitar), Kyle Beenhouwer (guitar), Melvin Crisp (drums), and Maud Beenhouwer (bass).
