Bettye LaVette

October 6 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

$30 – $50

Bettye LaVette is not a song writer. She is a singer in the tradition of great vocalists who have come before her: Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Dinah Washington to name just a few. Bettye is an interpreter of the highest order. Her gift is being able to take a song from any genre, whether well known or obscure, and making it completely her own. She will take a writer’s lyric and alter it so that the words come out sounding like something that she would say. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and Bruce Springsteen are just a few of the artists who have had their work re-imagined by Bettye. To quote another great vocalist, the late George Jones, “Bettye is truly a ‘singer’s singer’ “.
