    Presented by the Cultural Center of Cape Cod on Sunday, July 16, at 7:30pm.  

    Billie Holiday is categorized as a jazz singer, yet she is known as...The Lady Who Sings the Blues. Vocalist, Tish Adams has that same kind of dual identity. Many who frequent New England's Live Music scene have compared these two vocalists. Perhaps it's the way they both approach phrasing with the sensibilities of a horn player - adventurous enough to explore what each tune offers, while keeping unfailing respect for the path that makes the adventure possible... the melody. Perhaps it's the way that they both feel what they sing and can make the audience feel it, too, or perhaps it's just that they both have hair that waves, when pulled back and adorned with a flower. Tish reunites with talented pianist, Tim Ray, for the Cape Cod debut of her popular tribute to the legendary, "Lady Day." She'll share her love of the jazz icon in discussion and song. Those expecting an impersonation will be sorely disappointed. Adams says it's "Inspiration, NOT imitation." She shares Holiday's belief that every vocalist should find their own voice. After all, as Lady Day was known to say... "If I'm going to sing like someone else, then I don't need to sing at all." $25. For tickets visit or call 508-394-7100. Cultural Center of Cape Cod, 307 Old Main St., South Yarmouth.
