Her Blues: Celebrating women in the Blues

Photograph by Wilma Kotze

The Blues has always been about a shared experience. The show is about the women in blues, their stories and their songs. Luna Paige performs some of their most famous blues songs. She time travels with the audience. They kick off in old gin bars of the 1920’s, boogie-woogie in the 50’s and have soul in the 60’s and the 70’s. Famous Blues and Jazz-influenced tunes by singers such as Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and Janis Joplin can be enjoyed. Blues-rock fans can also look forward to songs by modern singer-songwriters who were all influenced by die legendary blues women from the past.  Songs from artists such as Tracy Chapman, Melody Gardot and Amy Winehouse can be expected.

ClemenGold Gin sponsor this group and make it affordable for us to see and experience this celebration of blues by some of Western Cape’s top musicians!

Women feel inspired! Men grin from ear to ear. It’s inspirational. It’s sexy. It’s fun!”  Do see that you don’t miss out!
