Gaye will be playing “some classics by blues women -- songs that would give an overview of women's history within the blues genre -- often with lyrics, sometimes with vocal techniques and, of course, in the music itself.” 

She will also be promoting Saffire’s “Having the Last Word” tour, which includes a show at Gravity Lounge on Friday, March 27.

Saffire
From the Saffire website:

Saffire was formed in 1984, and 2009 will mark our 25th anniversary. We will celebrate a quarter-century of fond memories and achievements. However, this 25th year will also be the year of our final tour and our final release as a group.

In these years, we have had the opportunity to make music all over the world. It has been a dream come true for all of us -- to make a living doing what we love. We've shared a magic chemistry that is much more than our individual talents.

So you might ask, "Well then, why are you ending Saffire?" For many years our visions coincided, but as we have aged and grown, our individual needs have changed. Our love of the music and our love for each other have not changed. As we move forward in different musical directions, we look forward to providing support and encouragement to each other. All three of us plan to continue performing in various configurations. (Please visit our individual websites: annrabson.com; andrafaye.com; adegbalola.com.) As Ann so clearly put it, she wants to be "musically promiscuous, instead of faithful to the same partners." Gaye and Andra say, "Ditto."
