Rhythms Concert Series

2014 Rhythms Schedule


Blues Against Child Abuse with Long Tall Deb

Saturday, April 12, 2014
Doors open at 6:30pm, Concert at 7:00pm

The Museum will collaborate with Jobs and Family Services to present Blues Against Child Abuse with Long Tall Deb.

Long Tall Deb’s Texas-Mexico border roots are never far from her songs.  She brings to the studio and the stage a one-of-a-kind sound that goes beyond “my-man-done-me-wrong” songs to tell stories that are deep, full-bodied, and reflective of her own life. 

Her honey- and molasses-soaked voice has been likened to the best mix of Koko Taylor’s heart and Etta James’s soul. Her keen, nuanced songwriting blends experience with a hint of mysticism.  She assembled a who’s who of BMA- and Grammy-worthy talent to showcase her songs on her VizzTone debut, “Raise Your Hands,” which is generating serious buzz, worthy of an artist on the rise.
