When you think of the blues – real blues – you think of the Delta, and names like Lightning Hopkins, Robert Johnson and the Reverend Gary Davis… grizzled old men with hands like a pair of ancient snakeskin boots, bent from trials only they could know. What you don’t think of, what you don’t expect, is a woman named Heidi.
That’s about to change. Heidi Holton is turning heads with her unique take on one of America’s oldest popular musical traditions. At once authentic and yet utterly new, her take on blues standards such as Baby Please Don’t Go and Statesboro Blues is nothing short of a revelation. Her tasteful originals shine just as brightly, seemingly both familiar and fresh.
