Working Mojo at the SpokenWord Cafe: Carol Lockridge had the mojo working
Carol Lockridge and Friends all the way live
The November Cafe proved a steamy mix with Carol Lockridge belting out the Blues and serenading the soft sounds to a packed house. Fort Wayne’s Blues Diva, who has been crowned Indiana’s Blues Woman of the Year, sang songs ranging from the playful “You can Have My Husband to the Soulful “God Bless the Child” sang for Julia Meek on her birthday.
Lockridge was back by Jeff McCray on guitar, and Fey Fey Moussou, TRIAAC’s house drummer and co-organizer. Check out the entire range of songs on TRIAAC’s Youtube Channel
Tanika Burt turns up the heat
Tanika Burt’s poetry was the perfect compliment for Cafe’s focus on the bountiful creativity of Black women. The second set was even more meaningful in that Tanika’s sisters were in the house and in full effect. The give and take between audience and performer was New York small cafe rich with the music and spokenword movement of black life.
