Besse Smith & the Blues (with Liz Dicks)

21 August 2009 at 7:15pm
at St Bride's Centre

The songs of Bessie Smith are recaptured by Fringe sell out artist Liz Dicks in this Fringe 'one night only' performance.

Accompanied by the renowned Jim Clelland on piano and Owen Macdonald on bass, the local blues singer pays tribute to classics from the legendary Bessie Smith. Interwoven between Liz's interpretations of Bessie's sassy and heart-wrenching songs, she tells intimate and compelling stories from the life and times of the highly acclaimed, 'Empress of the Blues', as Bessie was known.

This is a unique opportunity to re-capture the great success of last year's Festival performance.
