Mini Muni | Saturday | 3:00pm
Building on her passion for the empress of the blues, Julia Titus formed the band to share the music of Bessie Smith and her contemporaries with a new generation of listeners. Mixing Julia’s rich, warm vocal sound with a dynamic band – that look as well as sound the part – Ma Bessie & her Pig Foot band mix classic blues and jazz tunes from the inter-war years, with a selection of original songs and hand-picked covers from the last 50 years of popular music.
‘There will be smiles, a connection with the audience, superb music and we will be asked “when is she coming back”… a lot’.
