Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More

Was great to see Laura Love again. Her energy, talent and charm hasn't changed over all the years she's been performing in the NW; it only gets better, if that's possible! Her break dancing (am I saying it right???) was icing on the cake. Loved the harmonies and interaction btw. Laura and Jen Todd, another talented, versatile and powerful performer. Good match. And what to say about Bitch??? I've seen her at Michigan Womyn's Festival, and all I can say is Wow! what a off-the-wall, in-your-face over the top exceptional musician and performer. She takes Alternate Folk to new realms. Also great to see Lisa Koch again. Been awhile. Wd love to see a Dos Fallopia performance again. Great evening, great venue.. Glad I decided, last minute to make the trek from Vancouver BC - and back again, same evening!. Totally worth it! Cheers to all you girls, keep on doing what you do well. Love Pat/Sounds & Furies
Quotes & Highlights
“Laura Love will shake the world. The clincher is her live show … She’s that rare artist who can slip from sensitive folk to hip-hop without skipping a beat.” —Utne Reader
Learn more about the artists at their websites: Laura Love , and Bitch.
The media and even her own record label have struggled to define this inimitable musician’s colorful style, which embraces bits of the blues, bluegrass, jazz, folk, gospel, reggae, and country. However, Laura Love has sometimes called her music “Folk-Funk,” “AfroCeltic,” or “Hip-alachian.” Regardless of how she is described, Laura has an indisputable and uncanny knack for enthralling audiences from all walks of life, from octogenarians who line up to hear straight-ahead bluegrass to the pierced-and-tattooed set to middle-aged parents.
Bitch’s musical journey has taken her from classical-violin training in the suburbs to experimental flicks in NYC. After leaving the outskirts of Detroit for the artier charms of Chicago—Bitch’s unconventional and outspoken approach to performance caught the attention of a number of indie luminaries. She took fiddling lessons with Andrew Bird, serendipitously stumbled upon future co-conspirator, Animal at acting school, moved to New York to make their own ‘theater’ (Bitch and Animal) and recorded and toured with Ani DiFranco (who released Bitch and Animal’s records on Righteous Babe). This association yielded an international following, introducing the world to Bitch’s left-of-center and controversial brand of performance.
