This is a project to honor women blues artists.

These are the women who have earned their right to sing and play the blues and have paid their dues, but go largely unrecognized. We want to present their work in a live concert at our venue in Louisville Kentucky Nove 22nd 2015.
We want to pay for their performance. Too often artist are asked to perform for the sake of performing and networking what is referred to as exposure. NUh -uh. We want to pay them to let them know how much we appreciate and want to celebrate their talent and dedication to their art form.
In addition we want to highlight the work of local photographer Lou Tingle in an exhibit and opening reception the same night as the concert. The theme of their exhibit will be portraits of our guest performers performing at previous venues.
Original blues songs are welcome and encouraged.

All 12 singers have been invited by the producers of the event each an experienced musical event presenter., Each artist performing three songs then a grand finale featuring blues gospels and an old blues standard with all hands and voices on deck.

The intent is to build community, and to support women finding their voices and women in general. Half of our choice of local artists do not have recorded work yet maybe they will find a producer through this effort. Lettersong also plans to publish their upcoming engagements so folks know when and where to go see'em. Check out below for the list of artist:

Laurie Jessup, Carla Reisert, Judy Tyler, Kim Weber, Tanita Gaines, Sheryl Rouse, Amy Johnson, Susan O’Neil, Patty Cain, Marilyn Kington, Artie Wells and Robbie Bartlett.

Stay tuned for more in coming weeks!
ONE Thousand Thanks With Every Breath for considering this project.
