Ladies in the Blues
‘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.
