"Few," Harry Belafonte once said, "possess that fine understanding of a song's meaning which transforms it from a melody into a dramatic experience. Odetta, who has influenced me greatly in this area of dramatic interpretation, is just such an artist. The sensitivity and belief which she brings to her performances surpass even her vocal gifts, which are of the highest quality."
OFAM is extremely proud to present legendary blues folksinger Odetta in concert at The Shedd on Wednesday, December 18. Those of us who were fortunate to come of age in the '60s need no introduction to this magnificent artist. For everyone else, we simply recommend that you do not miss it.
