Catchy Tune: Free Tickets to Bettye LaVette on Dec. 13 at City Winery
The 72-year-old Grammy nominee is no mere singer. She is not a songwriter, nor is she a “cover” artist. She is an interpreter of the highest order. Her gift is being able to take a song from any genre and make it her own. “Raw. Gritty. Gut wrenching…one of R&B’s best-kept secrets.” (Billboard) “LaVette’s nuanced singing evokes prime Tina Turner with even more command.” (Rolling Stone) See details at washingtonpost.com/postpoints, Events & Contests.
