We Aren’t Dead Yet

December 5 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$12

Dianne Davidson, Deidre McCalla, and Jamie Anderson have years of performance experience between them. All three maintain solo careers but sometimes get together for this round robin extravaganza to prove that older doesn’t mean dead.
We are part of the vibrant women’s music movement that began in the seventies. Dianne and Deidre recorded for Olivia Records and we all did solo shows at hundreds of venues, from coffeehouses to Carnegie Hall. Appearing on stage together for “We Aren’t Dead Yet,” we perform songs spanning our careers, solo and with each other.
Dianne Davidson got a record contract instead of a high school diploma and went on to release several albums including one for Second Wave (Olivia) in 1988. She’s worked with everyone from Linda Ronstadt to BB King to Tammy Wynette. Part of the Nashville scene, her style is hard to define so she jokingly calls it “field and stream.” Whatever it is, expect a variety, from heartfelt ballads like “Tonight I’ll Dream That You Care” to rollicking covers like Willie Dixon’s “Built for Comfort.” She’s working on a new album.
The Miami Herald affectionately dubbed Deidre McCalla a “dreadlocked troubadour.” She is a much beloved performer in both folk and women’s music circles and has shared the stage with a long list that includes Tracy Chapman and Cris Williamson. With five critically acclaimed albums, her songs reflect a wide range of experiences from the moving “Girl You Don’t Know” to the reflective ballad “Cradled in Green.”
Hailing from Ottawa, Canada, Jamie Anderson is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter-comic. She’s played in 47 states and 4 countries, and released 11 albums including her newest The Truth Appears. Songs range from tongue-in-cheek (“Menopause Mambo”) to serious (“Black and White”). One of her videos has gone viral and she wishes she’d stop hear from lovesick losers who need to move out of their parents’ basements. Her first book was released in 2014 and her second one comes out in October. She doesn’t know anyone famous but she once passed Pat Benatar on a staircase.
