Texas Soul Sisters


This is a soul and blues celebration — sweet soul music with some up-tempo raw blues from some of the women who helped shape roots music in Texas. Features Glenda Hargis, who comes from a heavy gospel background and is now playing with her brother Matthew Robinson; Lavelle White, who's playing major festivals around the U.S.; Houston blueswoman Gloria Edwards, who's played with Clifton Chenier, Johnny Clyde Copeland, & Joe Hughes; and Miss Candy, known around the state of Texas for her soulful blues.

This is sweet soul music with a dose of raw Texas blues that will also serve as a dance party for the martini hipsters who like to dress to the 9s with the best of the Texas Soul Divas.
