In 2010, singer Pamela Rose launched “Wild Women of Song,” a multi-media show celebrating the lives and music of the women songwriters of the Tin Pan Alley era. The show toured nationally for six years. Now Rose is back with “Blues is a Woman,” a “theatrical concert” celebrating women blues artists. Paying tribute to a rich lineage from Ma Rainey to Bonnie Raitt, “Blues is a Woman” features stories, rare film footage and music from West Coast musicians Tammy Hall on piano, Ruth Davies on bass, Pat Wilder on guitar, Daria Johnson on drums and vocals, and Kristen Strom on saxophone.
