It Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues

About This Show

It Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues written by Charles Bevel, Lita Gaithers, Randal Myler, Ron Taylor, and Dan Wheetman, is a rich and rousing musical revue with songs ranging from African chants and spirituals to Delta and Chicago Blues. There are deeply spiritual numbers and raw and kinetic blues standards, with a healthy nod to the American popular song along the way. The score includes classics like Crossroads Blues, Goodnight Irene, Fever and Let the Good Times Roll, together with iconic popular songs made famous by Robert Johnson, BB King, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Muddy Waters, Ray Charles, Peggy Lee, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday and more.
