Gudrun's Sisters - I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues

Gudrun's Sisters - I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues

With cut-throat honesty, glorious tunes and wicked laughs Gudrun’s Sisters sing stories of 100 years of sisterhood through blues music from the 1920s to the present day.

Over 100 years since the first blues tune was published, why do we still like to sing the blues? Do the saddest songs help us get things off our chest? Do the saddest songs cheer us up? Do you have to have lived it to sing it? Who has the right to sing the blues?

Gudrun’s Sisters are Jacqui Wicks (voice and ukulele) and Seonaid Matheson (fiddle).

Please note: This event takes place at Wakefield Library, Wakefield One.
