About

Josephine Gore grew up singing in Spring Hill Baptist Church alongside her father who was the church pianist and deacon. The daddy-daughter duo performed extensively at churches and revivals throughout southeastern North Carolina. Church audiences were enthralled with the four-year-old’s ability to memorize an entire catalog of hymns and spirituals. She was the little girl with the big voice.

As a teenager, she would plunder through her grandfather’s record collection, playing albums by Mahalia Jackson, Ray Charles, James Brown and Nina Simone. She’s been hooked on jazz, blues, and R&B ever since. Jo Gore mesmerizes audiences with her angelic voice and electrifying stage presence while remaining true to her love of R&B and jazz standards. Each performance is full of love, life, music, and story-telling. These days, she’s the woman with the big voice and audiences are still enthralled.

Advance tix $10. Day of show $12.
