Her Blues made its debut in May 2018. Crowds went bonkers. The 9 piece band, directed by Richard H Nosworthy made an enormous impact on lovers of Blues and Jazz. On the 15th of November, a smaller ‘Her Blues’ ensemble gives a stripped down version of the concert live at Cafe Roux Cape Town.
The Blues has always been about a shared experience. The show is about the women in blues, their stories, and their songs. Luna Paige performs some of their most famous blues songs. She time travels with the audience. They kick off in old gin bars of the 1920’s, boogie-woogie in the 50’s and have some soul in the 60’s and the 70’s. Famous Blues and Jazz-influenced tunes by singers such as Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, and Janis Joplin can be enjoyed.
