Ma Bessie & her Pigfoot Band
Date: Jan 23 | Time: 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm | Price: £8 on the door
Building on her passion for the Empress of the Blues, Julia Titus formed the band in mid-2015 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. Whether you’re looking for a trio for an intimate club gig or a full five-piece band for a large festival stage, Ma Bessie has something for you.
The Ma Bessie repertoire includes classics such as ‘Careless Love’, ‘Nobody Knows When You’re Down And Out’ and, of course, ‘Gimme A Pig Foot (And A Bottle Of Beer)’.
