Here’s the right way to kick off Mother’s Day this year: a special showcase of the Women In Blues gathering performing the night before, on Saturday, May 9. This is a conglomeration of some of the finest, most talented ladies performing blues in the region, and though these shows may be more familiar taking place during the Waterfront Blues Festival or during the holiday season, they getting together this month as a treat for all moms.
The line-up for this event will include six powerhouse female vocalists: Ellen Whyte, Rae Gordon, Vicki Stevens, Lady Kat, Sonny Hess, and Lisa Mann. Lisa will be returning back from Memphis just before this show where she will be attending the Blues Music Awards and she is nominated for the best bass category. Hopefully, this show will be a celebration of her winning.
The Women In Blues Mother’s Day Special will be held at the Trails End Saloon, 1430 Main St., Oregon City. Start time is 8:00 pm and admission is $12.00. This is a Cascade Blues Association co-sponsored event, so show your membership card at the door for a $1.00 discount.
