Queen Esther at The BroadStage

Making her BroadStage debut, the “brutal, original, explosive singer” (Vanity Fair) Queen Esther performs selections from her substantial body of alt-country, jazz, and Black Americana to fearlessly subvert all-too-common historical narratives, revealing the powerfully triumphant resolve of Black folk in the 19th century and now. Queen Esther is joined on stage by guitarist Jeff McLaughlin whose “solos glowed and flashed… an aurora borealis of guitar” (Indianapolis Star). Use code MOM20 for 20% off tickets.
