Blues is a Woman

Friday, May 8, 2020 at 7pm

at the Port Angeles Performing Arts Center

Pamela Rose is a San Francisco jazz and blues vocalist who has thrilled local and international audiences for decades with her swinging, soulful style. Pamela's latest ensemble project, Blues Is A Woman, is a theatrical concert celebrating women blues artists from Ma Rainey to Bonnie Raitt. A brilliant ensemble of women musicians perform musical treasures as they tell stories and transport the audience back to the early roots of America's most enduring art form. Rose's Blues Is A Woman blurs the boundaries between concert and theater, using storytelling and music to bring to life the colorful history of the bold and singular women who wrote and popularized the blues. Some of the names are well known – Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin – and others should be – Ma Rainey, Ida Cox, Memphis Minnie, and so many more. The voices of these women are vibrant, challenging, inspirational, and dynamic, and Blues Is A Woman seeks to ensure that these women, their histories, and their message will be remembered and celebrated.
