Ruth Davies’ Blues Night with Special Guest Linda Tillery

Burning blues vocals.

Every year blues bass master Ruth Davies brings down the SJW house with her sensational Blues Night, showcasing current masters of the art. Ruth has been bewitching blues fans for years touring with the crème de la soulful crème: John Lee Hooker, Charles Brown, Jimmy Witherspoon, Elvin Bishop, and more. And she’s no slouch in the pop and jazz world either, with album credits for Bonnie Raitt, Van Morrison, and Toots Thielemans under her belt. Ruth is joined tonight by Bay Area vocal legend Linda Tillery, whose mind-blowing list of credits include collaborations with Huey Lewis and the News, Bobby McFerrin, and Kenny Loggins, women’s music superstars Holly Near and Teresa Trull, a long association with Olivia Records as a producer and as an artist, and her Cultural Heritage Choir. Her voice is incredible, her storytelling superb; don’t miss this chance to hear Linda sing the blues!
