Her Story - of the blues
Returning the spotlight to the point of origin, Mary Trees presents a collection of old-time classics — music of the trailblazing women who pioneered the blues.
Enraged by erasure and colonial continuity, this lone-range warrior traverses the songs on a mission to restore recognition. Sharing the troubles, triumphs, and the legacy of these long-forgotten legends - Ma Rainey, Memphis Minnie, Bessie, Gladys, Rosetta and more.
From the Mississippi Delta to the clubs of Harlem; songs, stories and emotions are channelled, delivering an authentic, refreshing homage whilst revealing the genesis of rock music, in the early blues women.
Prepare for toe-tapping, hip-slapping, a humming & a singing along.
This one-woman show features Mary Trees on all instruments.
