UA Presents welcomes Bettye LaVette to the Fox Theatre on Wednesday, Ickets Feb. 8th at Tickets are available online at uapresents.org or walk up at the Centennial Hall Box Office. See website for more details.

Awarded ‘Best Soul Blues Female Artist 2016” from The Blues Music Awards in Memphis.

A part of the 1960s Detroit R&B and soul movement, Bettye LaVette has remained a staple and mainstay in the soul/funk/R&B community since cutting her first record at 16. Her 2015 album “Worthy” received a Grammy nomination for Best Blues Album of The Year. Often referred to as a godmother of soul, LaVette’s towering, anthemic vocals are equally suited to the small clubs in which she got her start and the enormous arenas at which she has performed with legends like Paul McCartney and Jon Bon Jovi. Such a list of collaborations is proof alone that LaVette’s sound is as versatile and timeless as they come.

Fox Theatre. UApresents.org, tickets start at $20.
