Lindsay Beaver, Miss Barbara Clifford & the Shakin' Tailfeathers
Doors open at 7 pm.
LINDSAY BEAVER: When blues-rocking, soul-singing drummer, songwriter and bandleader Lindsay Beaver takes the stage, she makes an immediate and unforgettable impression. Standing front and center at her kit, singing every song from the depths of her soul, she delivers blues, R&B and old school rock ‘n’ roll with punk rock energy, and sings with a voice brimming with attitude and soulfulness. She comes at every song with urgent intensity, soul-baring emotion, a distinct swagger and a take-no-prisoners confidence. With influences ranging from Little Richard to The Ramones, from Billie Holiday to Queens of the Stone Age, Lindsay has crafted a timeless sound and personal style that simply cannot be denied.
Hailing from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Beaver possesses an old soul at the young age of 33. She is a classically trained vocalist and a jazz-trained drummer with a deep love and knowledge of roots music, from blues to jazz to R&B ballads to raucous rock ‘n’ roll. Live and on her recordings, she lays it all on the line, performing her signature mix of unforgettable originals and dance floor-filling versions of songs by artists as diverse as Sam Cooke and The Detroit Cobras. Her Alligator Records debut, Tough As Love, introduces her as a true force of nature with a sky’s-the-limit future. To read more go to, http://www.lindsaybeaver.com/bio
MISS BARBARA CLIFFORD & SHAKIN' TAILFEATHERS: Born and bred in Chicago, she is a 4ft, 11inch singer performing rockin' blues, rockabilly, & soul around Chicago with the help of The Shakin Tailfeathers. For the majority of her adult life, she's been singing all kinds of styles, but her passion has always been Roots-Americana music. Most notable for being 1/2 vocals in THE HONEYBEES, she decided to pursue a solo career. Her first solo album "Introducing Barbara Clifford" is made up of mostly original songs. It was recorded on Blue Lake Records (Switzerland) with the band The Rhythm Storms. Since then, she's performed worldwide and stateside. https://barbaraclifford.yolasite.com
