UNEDITED Black and Blues W-O-M-A-N
We're Giving Voice to the Female singers who put blues on the Americana Map and we couldn't have landed in a more appropriate or picturesque setting than Charleston's beautiful City Gallery. Enjoy the current exhibit Spirit and Memory: Contemporary Expressions of Cultural Heritage - curated by Jonathan Green as Laura Ball and her talented band (Robert Williams, Tommy Gill, Wayne Mitchum and David Patterson) bring you a musical history of the Blues and its Charleston roots. Rhythm, Melody, and History combine for a spectacular evening of intimate musical delights.
Special Guest Artist Ann Caldwell joins our RED HOT BLUES crew to introduce a blend of GOSPEL and SPIRITUALS to the soundscape.
The strong beats, claps, call and response shouting - all of these are key elements of community singing. The Gospel beats in the church were meant to move a body so that one could actually feel the spirit. It was and is still all about the movement.
The sense of soul movement from Gospel grew into the Blues Music and Culture. From the Church to the Street, the songs and rhythms, melodies and movements made their way into America's Music Mainstream.
We'll be paying homage to the songs that inspired the Blues - getting the audience involved every step of the way - while we sing some of the iconic songs that keep Blues on the Musical Map - Nina, Ella, Billie and even Bonnie and Janis. It's a night not to be missed!
