An NCPA Presentation.
17th March: Terrie Odabi
Get ready for a soulful evening with the best of blues in the city that has none.
After a successful first edition, the NCPA Soulful Blues festival is back with a power-packed line-up of two of the leading women of blues, promising to make it a soul-stopping heart-racing two days of blues and soul, with host Brian Tellis.
The line-up includes blues singers Demetria Taylor and Terrie Odabi. Taylor is the daughter of venerated Chicago blues musician Eddie Taylor, who, in his time, worked with John Lee Hooker and taught Jimmy Reed to play the guitar. In 2022,
Taylor was the winner of the KoKo Taylor Queen of the Blues award from the Jus’ Blues Foundation.
Odabi, it has been said, is easily the most dynamic blues and soul woman to have emerged in the Bay Area since Etta James came out of San Francisco’s Fillmore District in the Fifties. The Oakland-based singer is a seven-time Blues Music Award nominee.
Box Office now open.
