Simone Craddock – Birth of Blues
May 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$20.90
WA-born Londoner, Simone Craddock, is known on the British Jazz & Blues scene for her unique song stylings and irrepressible sense of humour. From Ronnie Scotts to the West End, Simone’s dual career in Music and Theatre has taken her across the UK, Europe, Asia and The States for the last twenty years.
Tonight, Simone joins forces with local legends, Adrian Galante (piano & clarinet), Danny Moss Jr (bass) and Bronton Ainsworth (drums), for some whiskey-toting, hip-swaying rabble-rousers from the likes of Nina Simone, Robert Johnson, Johnny Cash, Bessie Smith, Ray Charles, BB King, Amy Winehouse and Elvis Costello. From the spirituals of the Deep South, to country, rock n roll, blues-feel standards and saucy originals…no one can resist the rhythmic lure and laughter of the blues!
