A Century of Ladies in the Blues
The show that’s getting standing ovations all over Ireland, both North and South, is landing in Dublin’s Liberty Hall, for one night only, Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020 - exactly one hundred years to the day when Mamie Smith made the first blues recording by a woman. As an epicentre for radical politics in 1920, Liberty Hall is a fitting venue to acknowledge and revere the pioneers who followed Smith’s footprints, the women who transformed the blues from local folk music into the art form it is today. ‘A Century of Ladies in the Blues’’ live music journey travels from the gospel roots of the 1920s, through vaudeville & jazz, to the blues rock of the 60s & 70s, bringing these women and their stories to life through music and evocative visual backdrops.
Celebrate the power of women throughout a century of blues music, on Valentine’s Day 2020 in Liberty Hall, Dublin. Once described by The Irish Times as 'the centre of social anarchy in Ireland …’ what better place to pay homage to these trailblazers; the women who brought black culture into the American main stream, through the revolutionising force of music.
