All female blues showcase at Pitman's Friday night

LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room will be hosting an exciting all-female blues showcase on Friday August 22nd at 8 pm. Boston's Diane Blue and Lydia Warren will be rocking the house, as well as Portland, Oregon's Lisa Mann

When Boston's Diane Blue competed in the 2011 International Blues Challenge at BB King's club in Memphis, she was competing on the same stage against Lisa Mann and her "Really Good Band" from Portland, Oregon. The two front-women admired each others work, and decided to start an East-West collaboration.

Diane Blue toured the Pacific NW with Lisa Mann and her crew in February of 2013, and Lisa headed east to tour the Northeastern states in June with Diane's talented circle of musical friends, including Eddie Scheer, Travis Colby, and other Love Dogs and Roomful of Blues alumni.
