Fine Arts Center Concert Hall
UMass Amherst Campus
Every picture tells a story; every journey begins differently. To honor the city and her roots, the 2017 NEA Jazz Master, three-time Grammy and Tony award winner knew that she would have to go back home to do it right. Bridgewater’s highly-anticipated album “Memphis…Yes, I’m Ready,” released fall 2017, imbibes her love of vintage soul and blues with fierce passion. Dee Dee Bridgewater and her 9-piece band’s performance guarantees to recapture the magic and history of Memphis Blues, R&B and Soul classics.
Pre-concert party on the Fine Arts Center plaza starting at 6:30 p.m. Purchase BBQ package and/or beer-flight tasting in advance.
