Ladies in the Blues

Bray People - - NEWS -

‘Ladies in the Blues’ will per­form at Mer­maid Arts Cen­ter on Fri­day and Satur­day, March 3 and 4 at 8 p.m.

Ladies In the Blues is a live mu­sic the­atre show chart­ing the jour­ney of pi­o­neer­ing women in the blues such as Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith & Maimie Smith who made early blues record­ings.

These women were in­stru­men­tal in spread­ing the blues from the vaude­ville years to the jazz era right up to the late 19th cen­tury.

The four Ir­ish women of the blues - Flo Mc Sweeney, Clara Rose, Emma Ni­co­lai and Jhil Quinn are ac­com­pa­nied by a crack­ing live blues band fea­tur­ing Ire­land’s great­est ex­po­nents of the blues in­clud­ing Ed Deane and James De­laney.
