Pam Taylor • NW Women in R&B “Tribute to Sister Rosetta Tharpe” • Sister Mercy
Sonny Hess and NW Women in R&B pay tribute to the pioneering gospel/blues singer and guitarist, Sister Rosetta Tharpe. South Carolina’s up-and-coming Pam Taylor melds Americana-roots, country, and reggae influences into a modern take on the blues. Portland’s SISTER MERCY, fronted by mesmerizing vocalist April Brown, serve up high-energy rockin’ blues.
Cruise the beautiful Willamette River and hear the blues in an intimate setting on the Portland Spirit. A no-host hors d'oeuvres buffet and full bar are available on all cruises.
Don’t miss the boat! Purchase your ticket before the festival begins. These popular Blues Cruises sell out quickly.
