Blues Is A Woman

Pamela Rose brings her celebration of the outspoken, audacious women of the blues to the SFJazz Center for Women's History Month.

First workshopped at the Freight & Salvage in 2016, Blues Is A Woman made its theatrical debut in San Francisco in 2017. Now creator Pamela Rose and her ensemble (saxophonist Kristen Strom, pianist Jennifer Jolly, guitarist Pat Wilder, bassist Ruth Davies and drummer Daria Johnson) bring the show to the SFJazz Center on March 10 (as well as a matinee on March 16) to celebrate women in the Blues through live music and theatrical storytelling. Sunday, March 3 at 4 pm and streaming here until March 10.

Devon Strolovitch studied medieval Judeo-Portuguese manuscripts and earned a PhD in Linguistics from Cornell University before coming to KALW. He is the Senior Producer of Philosophy Talk, and since 2007 has hosted Fog City Blues, the weekly digest of Blues in the Bay Area and beyond.
