It's a belter - blues rocker compared to Janis Joplin returns for Newbury gig

More news, no ads


One of the few female vocalists compared to Joplin, Sari Schorr, returns to Arlington Arts on Friday, October 8.

In 2016, Schorr first burst onto the Blues-Rock scene with her critically acclaimed debut album A Force of Nature, produced by iconic British Blues pioneer Mike Vernon (David Bowie, Eric Clapton, John Mayall, Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green).

She has depth, life experience (like helping out in Haiti after the earthquake) and real stories to tell. "What you get is Blues with 3 Michelin Stars served in a New York diner. Don’t forget to leave a tip!"

Her latest 12-track live album was recorded on the last tour - you get the passion of original songs from her two studio albums and two reworked covers, Black Betty and I Just Want To Make Love To You, both hot favourites with audiences. These stunning live recordings come from across Europe, along with two previously-unreleased acoustic tracks recorded for the BBC in the UK. For Schorr “there is an honestly in a live performance that allows me to be vulnerable and uncensored.”

Her success comes after years trudging the rugged road of life of the hard-working Blues woman. From her humble beginnings, working the music scene in the legendary fierce South Bronx of New York and Manhattan’s Lower East Side, to a performance at Carnegie Hall, the operatically-trained tornado stood her ground as a phenomenal Blues-rock singer.
