”Ma Bessie presents a night of Classic Jazz & Blues"

Building on her passion for the Empress of the Blues, Julia Titus formed the band in mid-2015 to share the music of Bessie Smith and her contemporaries with a new generation of listeners. Mixing Julia’s rich, warm vocal sound with a dynamic band that look as well as sound the part, Ma Bessie & her Pig Foot band mix classic blues and jazz tunes from the inter-war years with a selection of original songs and hand-picked covers from the last 50 years of popular music including classics such as ‘Careless Love’, ‘Nobody Knows When You’re Down And Out’ and, of course, ‘Gimme A Pig Foot (And A Bottle Of Beer)’.

Julia Titus – Vocals
Matt Foster – Guitar
Charles Lloyd – Saxophone
Andy Wilkins – Drums

They have played at arts centres/theatres up and down the country including London's premier jazz venue "The Hideaway", Wilde Theatre in Bracknell, The Acorn Theatre in Penzance, The Old Town Hall in Hemel Hempstead.
