The Sweet Stylings of Bessie Smith Performance

September 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Jazz up your evening as Doris Fields portrays Bessie Smith: the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s! Join us for this FREE History Alive! performance at Morgan’s Grove Park Pavilion. Just bring a chair and picnic fare! Bessie Smith was known as the “Empress of the Blues”, her singing displayed a soulfully phrased, boldly delivered grasp of the blues.
A big thank you to the Friends of the Shepherdstown Library and the West Virginia Humanities Council for sponsoring the show and to the Shepherdstown Community Club for the use of the Morgan’s Grove Pavilion!
