On Thursday, July 13, 6-9 p.m., the Shaw JCC brings you a Blues Summer Concert featuring Lauren Mitchell, who is ranked a #1 Top 50 Soul Blues artist. This is a family fun event for the entire community! Bring a blanket or lawn chair, sit back, relax and enjoy a fun evening at our backyard Camp Pavilion! Come early and swim in our gorgeous outdoor pool, noon-6 p.m., before the concert begins. Proceeds benefit the Shaw JCC of Akron.
Lauren's latest album "Desire," is a bold mix of her own original material, songs she hand-picked from the repertoires of her friends, and select covers of tunes first performed by Etta James, Bettye Lavette, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and Betty Davis. Mitchell tells a blues story that's been a lifetime in the making. She has been described as "a mesmerizing performer, with a voice for the ages."
