Before her untimely death in May 2001, Sara Jordan was known as Knoxville’s “Queen of the Blues”, and to this day her crown remains unclaimed. With a big earthy voice and the stage presence to go with it, she lived and breathed the Blues like no one in this town has since the legendary Ida Cox. She performed in several bands - The Delta Flyers, Jordan Project, Mojo, and The Leftovers with whom she performed memorably at the 2000 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. She was also the creative force behind “Ladies Sing the Blues” at The Bijou Theatre in 1999 and the original Blues Jam at Sassy Ann’s, which spawned numerous Blues jams around East Tennessee.
