The Open Chord

This fundraiser celebrates the life and musical contributions of much beloved BLUES DIVA, Sara Jordan. A night of Blues, from musicians that knew Sara and played with her throughout her career. The bands donate their talents for a great cause, The Blues Foundation’s HART Fund.

Before her untimely death in May 2001, Sara Jordan was known as Knoxville’s “Queen of the Blues.” With a big earthy voice and the stage presence to go with it, she lived and breathed the Blues. She performed in several bands – The Delta Flyers, The Jordan Project, Mojo, and The Leftovers, with whom she performed memorably at the 2000 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. She was also the creative force behind the concert, “Ladies Sing the Blues” at The Bijou Theatre in 1999 and the original “Blue Jam” at Sassy Ann’s, which spawned numerous Blues Bands around East Tennessee. This is always a fantastic night of music, merriment, fellowship, and love.

This year’s fantastic line-up:

The Westside Cats
Doug Harris Band
Mighty Blue
Mystic Rhythm Tribe
Mojo Tweed

Cover charge at the door is $8 and $5 for SMBS members, with proceeds going to The Blues Foundation’s HART Fund.

Doors open at 6 PM, show starts at 7 PM.
