Celebrate the power of women in the evolution of blues music, from the gospel roots of the 1920s through vaudeville & jazz up to 1960s blues-rock. Having received standing ovations nationwide, this show takes you on a women’s journey, honouring pioneers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Nina Simone, Ma Rainey, Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin and many more – through song and iconic visuals. The show journeys from the first recording of the blues by Mamie Smith in 1920 through the decades up to the sixties with Janis Joplin. This all Irish cast includes four female singers and a crackin’ blues sideband.

“A spectacular, opening night stage production, featuring four female singers and a cracking band of blues’ sidemen performing songs written and recorded by women in the history of the blues.” Music journalist, Dermot Hayes
