Artistic Director Kenny Leon and True Colors Theatre Company are proud to announce the addition of R&B singer/songwriter, Anthony David, to the cast of its production of Kevin Ramsey’s Chasin’ dem Blues: The Untold Story of Paramount Records.
Best known for his 2008 song “Words,” a duet with contemporary R&B singer India.Arie, David will play the role of bluesman, Blue. This will be David’s first performance with a professional theater company.
“Blues is the roots, everything else is the fruits.” So proclaimed Willie Dixon, blues composer, famed recording-session maestro, bass man, and an early bridge between the blues and rock ‘n’ roll.
This thought is brought to life in the untold story of Paramount Records, Chasin’ dem Blues. This roof-raising show is a foot-stomping, multi-media musical celebration, which thrills audiences with storytellers’ account of how a small Midwest town changed the landscapes of American music, and ushered in the sound of the early 20th century, a sound that still reverberates today.
Chasin’ dem Blues: The Untold Story of Paramount Records will open on Friday, July 10 and run through Sunday, August 2. Following opening night, performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8PM as well as Saturday and Sunday at 2:30PM. All performances will be presented at Fulton County’s Southwest Arts Center at 915 New Hope Rd, Atlanta, GA 30331.
