The latest Detroit Blues Heritage Series event pays tribute to three female blues singer-guitarists, and is set to feature musical performances and lectures about the accomplishments of the three renowned blues artists. Focusing on the works of Memphis Minnie, Beverly “Guitar” Watkins and the rarely-recorded but superlative Geechie Wiley, “Women of the Blues” takes attendees through their lives, songs, and lyrics. Of note is the performance and lecture by musician and researcher Alicia Marie Venchuk, accompanied by the RJ Spangler Trio.
