Ladies Sing the Blues

  • FOX Tucson Theater 17 W Congress St Tucson, AZ, 85701 United States (map)

“This power trio offers a powerful illustration of why this music is known as the ‘classic’ blues.” –Wall Street Journal

Channeling the independent spirits and pioneering vocalizations of Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, and Ethel Waters, vocalists Catherine Russell, Brianna Thomas, and Charenee Wade “find nooks and crannies in the material you may not have known were there.” Pianist Mark Shane leads a seven-piece band, enlivening this classic American music and demonstrating the ageless relevance of stomping the blues away.
