FRIDAY SEPT 5TH HEADLINER

Kim Archer (Presented by Westport Inn)

Kim Archer, known for her raw, powerhouse performances and personable interaction with her audiences, Archer has attracted a large and loyal following of fans in the Pacific Northwest and across the country.

SATURDAY SEPT 6TH HEADLINER

Lady "A"

Lady "A", heads up one of Seattle's Hottest Bands and performs periodically in the Portland, OR area with other musical friends. Lady “A” & the Baby Blues Funk band have performed together for the better part of 20 years. She, along with her band, deliver untold Blues & Funk not reserved for the faint of heart, with a little Gospel to level her out!

SUNDAY SEPT 7TH HEADLINER

Claudette King

Claudette King, the youngest daughter of ultimate blues master B. B. King, is quick to cite her father as her main “inspiration.” But most certainly, the power of Claudette’s enthusiasm for the splendid genre-blending music on her debut “On To Something” merits wide notice. Trained in the gospel of the Baptist church from age 13, King is developing some of the emotional authority that one associates with her mighty mentors: Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Koko Taylor, Chaka Khan, Mavis Staples, Mahalia Jackson, even Michael Jackson. The affable singer will tell you: “I got a bit of everybody inside of me.” One of the premier, up-and-coming blues-and-more vocalists of the day Claudette is conscientious and hard-working and she shows her own style, her own identity, through rhythm, phrasing, and timbre.
