Bettye LaVette at the Narrows

Posted

Bettye LaVette is no mere singer. She is an interpreter of the highest order. Whether the song originated as country, rock, pop, or blues, when she gets through with it, it is pure R&B. She gets inside a song and shapes and twists it to convey all of the emotion that can be wrought from the lyric. To quote the late, great George Jones: "Bettye is truly a 'singer's singer'". On these intimate shows, Bettye is accompanied by her keyboard player, Evan Mercer. She will be performing songs from throughout her 57 year career, including songs that she used to perform in small Detroit clubs before her 21st Century resurgence began. Neal McCarthy kicks off the show.
