The sixth edition of Les Grandes Dames du Blues promises to be highly
entertaining as well as beneficial. Developed around International
Women's Day, the Grandes Dames du Blues aims to raise funds and
awareness for women's shelters in host cities. This year's Montréal show
will highlight excellent female blues voices and, as in past years, will
feature Montreal's own Dawn Tyler Watson and her band, the Dawn Tyler
Blues Project. This year's guest singers include the mother and daughter
team of Jackie & Kim Richardson. Both will be appearing in the musical
Ain't Misbehavin' later this year. Nancy Desmarais is an up and comer
and lead vocalist of the Blues Berry Jam. Come hear a great show and
support a great cause.

This very special event will also act as a fundraiser for Montreal's
L'Auberge Madeleine, a centre for women who are homeless or in need of
assistance.
