Gaye Adegbalola with Roddy Barnes Neo Classic Blues CD

Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring
$12 advance/$15 door
Gaye Adegbalola's musical roots run deep. As a founding (and
current) member of Saffire-The Uppity Blues Women, Gaye not only
rediscovered the blues she first met as a child, she put her stamp on them,
helping grow Saffire from local sensation to international phenomenon.
"Adegbalola just keeps getting better and better as a
songwriter,' proclaimed The Buffalo News. Now through her latest album,
Neo-Classic Blues with Roddy Barnes she embraces and
redefines the classic
style of the great blues-women of the 1920s and 30s who were unashamed to
lay their souls bare and unafraid to give advice. Her partner on this project,
Roddy Barnes, is classically trained and can play any genre, but
excels in the old-timey sound that works best with Gaye's music.
