Honoring the First Lady of Country, Jess Eliot Myhre of the Bumper Jacksons has assembled a group of talented local artists for a genre-spanning evening dedicated to Cline’s music. One of the most influential and acclaimed vocalists of the 21st century, Cline was a true pioneer for women in the country music industry and a wild character whose personal stories shine in their retelling, again and again. Emotive and sultry, her contralto could describe the depths of the human condition with rare poignance. Talented artists from across the D.C. area are teaming up to pay tribute to the First Lady of Country with classic renditions of her songs, as well as re-imagined versions with new instrumentation and creative arrangements. The internationally-touring, award-winning musicians and songwriters include Be Steadwell, Nicole Saphos, Dave Chappell, Maureen Andary (Sweater Set), Shannon Bielski, Ele Rubenstein, and Jess Eliot Myhre.
