Bettye Lavette - London 07 Nov details


May have noticed was a bit of confusion on this as details were shouted on Jazz Fm, but some thought it was diff venue Tracked down details and ripped them below Venue is the UNION CHAPEL web site If attend do us a favour and pass on soul source how it was, as due to other weekend going ons cant fit in london EVENTS NEWS FLASH BLUES LONDON 2003 6TH AND 7TH NOVEMBER PROGRAMME CHANGE News Flash Sadly Blues London 2003 must announce the cancellation on November 7th of Ms Koko Taylor the "Queen of the Blues" due to illness. We will miss her very much and wish her a speedy recovery. We are thrilled to announce however that Bettye Lavette has kindly offered to fill in for Ms Taylor. Ms Lavette has taken the blues and soul world by storm the last several years. Acclaimed by those in the know as the greatest unrecognized soul singer in the last 40 years, Ms Lavette was named the "#1 Artist Deserving More Attention" by critics in the Sept/Oct 2003 edition of Living Blues Magazine. She appeared to sold out audiences at the Chicago Blues Festival in 2002. Ms Lavette was born Betty Haskin and recorded her first single for Lupine back in 1962. (when she was only sixteen) She went on to produce a string of singles on labels as well known as Atlantic, Epic and Motown throughout the 1970s, though she never released a full length album. Ms Lavette's new CD "A Woman Like Me" has wowed the critics across American including the San Francisco Chronicle, the Village Voice, the New York Times, Blues Revue, Living Blues and many other. We are delighted that she is able to appear Friday Nov 7th, still with special guest Robert Belfour. We are also suspect that a few of her other secret admirers may turn up to add to the evenings enjoyment. * Union Chapel Administration (postal address) * The Vestry * Compton Avenue * London N1 2XD
