MA BESSIE AND HER BLUES TROUPE CONTINUE TO TOUR ACROSS THE UK

“Ma Bessie” (Julia Titus) and her Blues Troupe are playing to sell-out crowds, celebrating the contribution that Bessie Smith made to jazz and blues with a narrated show and 21 tracks.  Nicknamed the “Empress of the Blues” Bessie was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s.  She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and had a major influence on jazz artists at that time.  Look out for an exciting new show during 2022….. Ma Bessie “After Dark” featuring some of the more risque songs from the 1920 and 1930s.

And not forgetting…. SAM KELLY’S STATION HOUSE – still funkin’ off them blues

Look out…. look out…. there’s a 10 minute film/documentary about!!  It is called “No Barricades” and features music from Sam Kelly’s Station House.  The film shows how Sam Kelly, his brother Fowokan George Kelly (a notable sculptor) and his son, DJ Skol Kelly (Godfather of hardhouse) have, against many odds, established themselves in “The Arts”.  More news coming soon.

Fans across the World have waited more than ten years for news of a new SAM KELLY’S STATION HOUSE album.   “No Barricades” portrays the musical vibe and on-stage camaraderie of this established line-up – at times, showcasing the individual talents of each one of these accomplished musicians yet, within a heartbeat, reverting to a tight unit of exciting entertainment.
