Teeny Tucker: Women in Blues
Black History Month Show
- This event has passed.
Teeny Tucker and her guitarist and musical director Robert Hughes present “Women in Blues”, an exceptional educational and performance experience that is one of the Black History Month shows at Natalie’s in February. Teeny will sing and speak about the great women blues singers that have influenced her and many other artists. The program will also include an audio/visual presentation, and audience members will have a chance to ask questions and interact with Teeny during the evening.
Tucker is one of the brightest stars in the blues genre, and has been gaining an international reputation as a dynamic performer on stage as well as a recording artist with three highly acclaimed CDs to date, and a brand new one set to be released soon. Teeny is the daughter of the renowned blues-singer-pianist-composer Tommy Tucker, who wrote and first recorded “High Heel Sneakers,” a pop-classic that’s been performed by Elvis, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones. Her musical journey has seen Teeny perform at many of the major Blues Festivals in the US, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, and Italy. She has been invited to appear on the same bill with great blues artists such as BB King, KoKo Taylor, Etta James, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Keb Mo, and many others. Teeny was the winner of the 2010 Monterey Bay Blues Artist of the Year, and has been nominated for many prestigious awards, including the Living Blues Magazine “Artist of the Year”.
