Back in the day, blues singers had to seduce their audiences with clever lyrics, double entendres, and lots of food references to get around strict censorship rules. You’d think that they’d be tame by modern comparison… or are they? Singer Rev. Mary and pianist Dan Furman unveil a steamy array of vintage bawdy blues paying homage to performers like Mae West, Sophie Tucker, Bessie Smith, Rosa Henderson, Ruth Brown, Stella Johnson … and Barrel House Annie to name a few. Rev. Mary is a trained singer in numerous genres including jazz, blues, Broadway, even classical opera.
