This Sunday Jen talks to Betsy Benham about the upcoming Jazz and Soul Benefit for the Montessori School in Wilton CT. http://www.themontessorischool.com/ Betsy is a versatile performer with a soulful voice, and known for her dynamic range and alluring presence. Rhapsody and Blue features the songs from jazz divas Dinah Washington, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald that are timeless in the stories they tell and the emotions they evoke. Betsy is thrilled to pay homage to these and other artists, and is excited to bring the songs of an era gone by back to the stage. Betsy was a founding member of the popular, award winning band Third Sister. During the decade that the band played together, she was the vocal arranger creating intricate harmonies for the band which featured three women singers. She was also a regularly contributing song writer. While perfoming with Third Sister, Betsy and the girls opened for Bo Bice, Rick Derringer, Murali Coryell, The Chicago Blues Project (wiht Murali C.),Renee Austin and John Mulkerin. The group appeared in NYC at The Cutting Room and at BB King's, and in numerous area festivals. In the late 80's Betsy was the vocal arranger for the a capella female group White Chocolate.
