“Betty LaVette is the sexiest female vocalist alive. Her voice is elegance and abandon, complete control and total chaos. Which makes her the best definition of a soul singer since Janis Joplin and Tina Turner” (Esquire)

“Her still strong and expressive voice, grainy and lived-in, romped, pleaded and blasted away the years” (Mojo)

The great soul and R&B singer, and multiple Grammy nominee, Bettye LaVette, brings her heart-wrenching mix of blues, soul and gospel to Edinburgh for the first time. From singing on Broadway with Cab Calloway; and touring with Ben E King and Otis Redding; to duetting with Bon Jovi (for Barak Obama’s inauguration), she’s always been the most soulful interpreter of the highest order. Whether the song originated as country, rock, pop, or blues, when she gets through with it, it is pure soul and R&B!

Tickets: £27.50 / £25.50
