Lavender Blues Text Size
Event takes place on June 24, 2016 at 7:00 PM
Modern cabaret performer Sarah Kilborne, great great granddaughter of William Skinner and the author of American Phoenix, returns to Wistariahurst with a brand new show that brings to light the quiet, yet powerful emergence between the world wars of songs that spoke about what it was like to be gay or “in the life.” From such legends as Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Gladys Bentley and Josephine Baker, Kilborne performs songs – written almost a century ago – that describe what it is like to be non-binary.
