Music of Lady Day, First Lady of Song at SLCC’s Grand Theatre

Fans of Billie “Lady Day” Holiday and Ella “First Lady of Song” Fitzgerald will delight in a live performance of their classic songs by Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin at Salt Lake Community College’s Grand Theatre.

Darby-Duffin’s “To Billie & Ella With Love” runs January 8-10 at 7:30 p.m. each night as part of the Grand Theatre’s Backstage at the Grand concert series. One critic’s review of Darby-Duffin’s interpretation of Holiday’s songs called the show a “consummate performance” and her singing “remarkable.”

The Backstage concerts feature an intimate seating arrangement on stage around the performers. For ticket information call 801-957-3322 or visit www.the-grand.org/events/backstage. The final Backstage concert will feature the duo joy&eric January 15-17 doing covers of modern acoustic pop songs.
