Ma Bessie’s Blues Troupe – Sat 11 Dec 2021 – Wilfrid Noyce Godalming

Nicknamed the ‘Empress of the Blues’, Bessie Smith was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920’s and 1930’s. She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era, and was a major influence on other jazz singers.

Ma Bessie and her Blues Troupe perform a narrated show, featuring music from the era, and showcasing many of Bessie’s songs. The show chronicles her life, from a one-room shack in Blue Goose Hollow, to becoming the highest paid black entertainer of that time, to the tragic accident on Route 61 that ended her life, aged just 43 years.

This hugely entertaining show features the irrepressible Julia Titus as Ma Bessie. Her all-star Blues Troupe comprises internationally acclaimed drummer Sam Kelly, with Paul Jobson on piano (MD), Tony Quinta on acoustic guitar, Marianne Windham on upright bass, Clare Hirst on saxophone/clarinet and Kevin Davy on trumpet.
