Before her untimely death in May 2001, Sara Jordan was known as Knoxville’s “Queen of the Blues”. With a big earthy voice and the stage presence to go with it, she lived and breathed the Blues. She performed in several bands – The Delta Flyers, The 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 the concert, “Ladies Sing the Blues” at The Bijou Theatre in 1999 and the original "Blue Jam" at Sassy Ann’s, which spawned numerous Blues Bands around East Tennessee. This is always a fantastic night of music, merriment, fellowship, and love.
