Woman Of The Blues says
The Detroit Blues Society presents the Detroit Blues Heritage Series

Part musical tribute and part educational lecture and round-table discussion, this event pays tribute to the lives, lyrics, songs, and accomplishments of three prolific and revolutionary women blues guitarists: Memphis Minnie, Geeshie Wiley, and Beverly “Guitar” Watkins.

This show features a performance and lecture by guitarist/vocalist and researcher Alicia Marie Venchuk, a graduate of the University of Michigan and an English Literature PhD student at the University of Mississippi, as accompanied by the RJ Spangler Trio with Alina Morr on keys, Gwen MacPhee on string bass & RJ on drums.
