Description:

Bonded by a mutual love of the blues and all sharing powerful, emotive voices, Dorothy Morrison, Tracy Nelson, Annie Sampson and Angela Strehli, have joined together as Blues Broads. Packing decades of collective experience in blues, country, gospel and rock into their setlists, these vocalists have put together a thrilling blues revue. Each brings something unique to the mix: Nelson garnered acclaim in the 60s and 70s, sharing the stage with the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and others; Morrison is the renowned lead vocalist on “Oh, Happy Day”, the highest-selling gospel record of all-time; Strehli brings Texas twang to the group, having been a fixture at Austin’s legendary club Antone’s; and Sampson brings not just rock and gospel but musical theatre to the stage, as she was one of the leads in the original San Francisco production of Hair. With a wide range of stylistic influences and a wealth of combined material to draw from the Blues Broads are far more than the sum of its parts.
