The Blue and Gold
The Blue And Gold is a musical collaboration between Juno nominated and WCMA Blues ‘Artist Of The Year’ Ndidi O and folk-roots guitarist / banjo player Trish Klein (The Be Good Tanyas, Frazey Ford, Po’ Girl) which celebrates the musical artistry and legacy of pioneering female blues musicians. Their album debut, released April 29, 2022, is a musical homage to the profound influence of Black female artists of 20th century country / blues traditions and indeed on the evolution of all modern music; 11 songs recorded with authenticity, soulfulness and grit, including reinterpretations of the works of pioneering female artists Memphis Minnie, Lottie Kimbrough, Victoria Spivey, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and others, as well as one song by the legendary Indigenous songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie.
The Blue And Gold was recorded at Vancouver’s premiere analogue studio Monarch Studios with engineer Olivia Quan, and bassist Darren Parris, drummer Flavio Cirrulo and mixed in Nashville at Resistor Studios by engineer / musician / producer Joshua Grange.
