The CAMP Rehoboth Women’s FEST Committee presents jazz singer/songwriter/storyteller Sweet Baby J’ai in a pre-Jazz Fest performance. A critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, and actress, Sweet Baby J'ai takes audiences on a journey through time from the beginning of recorded music to present day.
Her show, “The History of Women in Blues,” combines music, drama, and visual arts, including historic videos and inspiring anecdotes, told as only J'ai can. From Da’ Blues and the rise of the Harlem Renaissance to the turbulence of the sixties and beyond, this tribute to some of the most iconic singers in jazz and blues builds understanding and appreciation for the history and culture of the female experience in American music.
Sweet Baby J'ai will be performing at Epworth United Methodist Church, 19385 Holland Glade Road. The show is at 8 p.m. with doors opening at 7:15. Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door.
